GUEST,jonesey How do you find a voice teacher? (27) RE: How do you find a voice teacher? 02 May 02

Years ago I was losing my voice pretty consistantly. Heard a fellow singer who'd made dramatic improvment in her singing in a very short period of time. I asked her how and she refered me to her vocal coach. The vocal coach was a classically trained contralto and I sang folk/country/blues. Took lessons from her for a month. Still use those lessons today 20 years later. Those 'structural sense memory exercises' coupled with a concentrated effort to learn 'yogic breathing' has given me a solid base from which to operate. Practice 'proper technique' everyday and then let it go when you sing. Gradually it will feel 'unnatural' to sing incorrectly and your voice will hold out much longer. Also, I got a couple of books about 'the voice' as a 'physical tool' and learned about anatomy which helped a ton. If you smoke...stop.
