In 2001 I spent a lot of time helping develop a revolutionary approach to singing. Together with Kate Slaney, one of most successful singing teachers in Australia and Roger McLachlan from The Little River Band we set about to create a contemporary singing course that could be used over internet. The result is at http://www.exploreyourvoice.com After decades as professional musicians and singers we figured we could produce something that was accessible, fun to use, and was able to dispel entire mystique about singing.
Honestly, it was an enormous gamble. We dedicated 2 years of our lives to building this online course that streams straight to your pc from a website and we were not at all sure how well it would be received. The net can be a fickle place. Now, 2 years later, thousands of people have used Explore Your Voice to build their confidence and discover their own unique voice.
Ultimately it all depends on what you want in your life. For some people, a great singing voice is not so critical, they would prefer lots of cash if given choice! To others it is as important as breathing. The ability to sing in key with a strong voice and a warm, charming tone is one of life’s true rewards.
In my experience, many would-be singers simply never make that necessary decision to invest a little time in themselves. They like idea of singing well but find themselves always putting it off to another day. The next time you pass by a karaoke bar think of this - what is stopping you?
