I had a blast giving an introductory voice lesson to everyone at the Berkeley Breakfast Club last month. I wasn't sure if everyone would participate since this group includes members of all ages and from every walk of life-- but they all stood up and made funny sounds when I asked them to, and they sounded great on the final song. At 8AM. What a fun way to start a visit to my home town.
Tis' the season for chest colds and laryngitis, I went through a bout of this before the holidays. I just posted a new video about this topic, it's on Youtube and the video sInging tips page of this site.
