From Speaking to Singing. Singing Lessons for Beginners

Audrey Hunt, author of "Anyone Can Sing," and internationally acclaimed vocal coach, shows us how to go from speaking to singing.

If You Can Speak, You Can Sing

Singing is for everyone, not for a chosen few.

Singing is for everyone, not for a chosen few.

Get Ready to Sing

Is it possible to go from speaking to a full-on singing voice? Yes, it certainly is. You may not sound like Luciano Pavarotti or Beyoncé, but you have to start somewhere. And once this is done, you can take your singing to the next level and develop a rich, fantastic sound.

This lesson is for beginners (or the curious). I'm going to teach you how to initialize your singing voice. This will be an easy way to get started for those who have never sung. For the rest of you, if you're not too happy with how you sound when you do sing, follow along just for the heck of it. Who knows? Maybe this tutorial will be just what you need for a richer, well-developed voice.

You Have Everything You Need to Become a Singer

Your body has all the seeds planted right where they belong for singing. Let's look at the very roots needed for singing:

  • Vocal cords. Do you have a set of vocal cords? Sure you do, or you wouldn't be able to speak?
  • Do you breathe? Of course. Otherwise, you wouldn't be alive.
  • What about a resonating system? Once the vibrating vocal cords produce the sound, the vibrations go through the open resonating chambers: chest, mouth, nasal (or "mask"), and head. Once these seeds are exposed to correct and nurturing methods, the blossoms of singing come forth.

So there you are - you have it all right inside you.

Discover Your Singing Voice in a Flash

The following exercise can be done either in a standing or sitting position. Use good posture to keep your spine straight because your breathing muscles and rib cage connect to the spine. Feel for openness in the chest area, keeping it high and quiet. Avoid raising the chest and shoulders when taking a breath.

The sound you are about to make is much like chanting. It may even remind you of the om sound used in meditation. Feel free to add an "m" to the word "huh" (hum) or even use om.

1. Speaking the word huh or om (I will be referring to the huh), repeat it six times. (huh, huh, huh, huh, huh, huh). Try to make each huh sound exactly match the previous sound.

2. Repeat this exercise but hold the word huh by sustaining the "uh." (huuuuuuh). You'll find that more air is needed to do this. So ' tank up" by inhaling more air from the belly. Refrain from lifting your chest. Inflate around the waistline and lower rib cage as you draw in your air. Let your air out sparingly.

3. Repeat holding the "uh" sound a bit longer. Be aware of any vibrations you may feel. If necessary, keep repeating until you do feel vibrations in the area of the nose, cheeks, or roof of the mouth (the hard palate). If you're using the word om, vibrations are also felt in the lip area. These vibrations indicate the resonators are at work for amplifying your sound.

4. Hydrate your throat with plenty of room-temperature water after completing this exercise. (Coldwater restricts the vocal cords.)

Good Vibrations

Make the most of your singing by using your resonating chambers. Connect with one of these three areas:

  • Throat
  • Mouth
  • Nasal passages.

These areas vibrate to enhance your singing tone. Beginning singers usually ignore these vibrations.

One way to feel the nasal vibrations is to sing the word "sing" using a relaxed tone. Sustain the "ng" to feel strong vibrations in the mask. Try other words ending in "ing." Humming, using a relaxed sound, also helps to locate these vibrations.

Sustain the "ng," bringing the back of the tongue in contact with the hard palate, and as you do this, you will feel the vibrations in the nasal area. Try it now.

Jet-Singing Exercise

Now it's time to vary the pitch. As you go through these exercises, you must never continue the sound until you run out of breath. In other words, don't hold onto the tone until you're gasping for air.

The breath serves the thought, and each thought (or phrase) has an intrinsic length. Each new thought has a new breath. Short thoughts have short breaths, a medium thought needs a medium amount of air, and long thoughts require long breaths.

If you want to develop your voice as a musical instrument (and this is what it is), you must work on diaphragmatic breathing until it becomes natural and you can manipulate it at will.

1. Sing the sound of huh. It doesn't matter how it sounds at this point or whether you're sound is high or low. It is easier for beginning singers to place the sound in the middle, not too high or too low. It should feel somewhat easy and comfortable.

2. Now, sustain the huh sound as you previously did. Don't judge or criticize your new singing sound. Regardless of what you think about your voice, it will get better.

3. This time, you will take off, like a jet, using your voice. Keep your voice relatively soft throughout this exercise to keep your voice from cracking as you sing through the break.

4. Start on a low, deep tone (sound) and use the word E as in 'We'; imagine you are a jet preparing for lift-off. You're about to maneuver your voice from the runway, climbing slowly into the sky.

5. The runway is where you prepare your singing engine for takeoff. Think of breathing (inhalation) as your engine for sound. Get ready to take a big breath for launch by engaging your belly and filling it full of air.

6. Using the word E, allow your sound to ride on air as you release your air a little bit at a time. As you climb higher and higher, your pitch is climbing higher.

7. Now is the time to let your imagination come into play. Become a child again. Your singing voice duplicates the siren of a fire engine. Start down low and allow your free voice to climb all the way upward to a high sound (pitch). Once you reach the top of your vocal range, slide slowly back down to where it started down low.

Siren Exercise to Increase Your Range

The Siren Vocal Exercise

This siren exercise is much like the jet-singing you just practiced. It sounds much like a police siren. It's a great warm-up and helps singers with the following:

It extends the vocal range, giving you a broader sound and more freedom to sing high notes. Because the singer is learning to take a deep enough breath to complete this exercise, the additional use of breath frees the tone to sweep higher than ever. The voice can hit higher notes with freedom and ease,

. Smooths out the vocal "break." If you've ever heard your voice crack in the middle of a song, you've experienced the natural break in the voice as it moves from one register to the next. The siren exercise provides the right amount of ease and air to smooth the gap.

To begin the siren exercise:

1. Completely relax your entire body.

2. Beginning on a low note, mimic the sound of a siren using the vowel "ee" or "oo."

3. Bring the note up (sliding every note) as high as possible, singing through 'the break' and continuing into falsetto.

4. Stay in your highest sound for a second or two, then slowly return to your starting note.


Use plenty of air for this exercise to prevent damage to the vocal cords, and use a soft but supported sound. If the higher notes do not feel easy and comfortable, refrain from going too high.

The Singer's Breath

To inhale properly, place the palm of your hand on your belly and inflate like a balloon.

To inhale properly, place the palm of your hand on your belly and inflate like a balloon.

Concentrating on the Breath

The longer you hold a note, the more air you need. This is why you hear so much about the importance of breath control for singing. A pleasant, controlled voice is a voice that controls the amount of air needed for every phrase of music.

When you go from speaking to singing, your singing sound rides on the breath. So it would help if you had plenty of air to sustain the sound. This air is executed upon inhalation.

This air doesn't come from your chest; it comes from your belly, known as the diaphragm. The belly breath provides you with plenty of needed air for holding on to the sound you produce. The more you know about breath control and how to use it during singing, the better your sound will be.

Release the air slowly to help sustain the sound longer.

Now it's time to sing the first three words, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." Notice that the sound of "Row, Row, Row" are all on the same pitch...they all sound the same.

Be aware of your breathing. Inhale plenty of air before singing, and let your air out slowly as you repeat each "Row."

How did it feel? Did you have enough air to sing through all three "rows"? Don't worry about your sound. We'll get to that later. For now, concentrate on your breathing.

Points to remember:

  • When you go from speaking to singing, your singing sound rides on the breath. So it would help if you had plenty of air to sustain the sound. This air is executed upon inhalation.
  • Air doesn't come from your chest; it comes from your belly, known as the diaphragm. The belly breath provides you with plenty of needed air for holding on to the sound you produce. The more you know about breath control and how to use it during singing, the better your sound will be.

Yawning for Lifting the Soft Palate

Yawning lifts the soft palate, opening the back of the throat.

Find Your Singing Voice by Yawning

That's right! A simple, lazy yawn will open the back of your throat and release your initial singing voice. But wait! You want to do this exercise exactly the right way:

  • Use good posture whether you sit or stand. Keep that spine straight. After all, your singing muscles are attached to your spine. Didn't know that? Well, now you do, and it dramatically affects how you sound when you sing. So make it a habit to check your posture often.
  • Now, relax all your facial muscles and take a nice big yawn.
  • With your mouth yawning, release your voice with a gentle but controlled sigh.
  • Repeat this relaxing exercise using these different sounds: Ee, Ah, Eh, Oh, and Oo. The mouth will change position on each of these primary vowels.
  • Repeat once more and hold the yawn longer before sliding down to release your singing sound.

Look at you! You've just found the beginning of your singing voice. Congratulations!

Your Voice Is Like a Gold Nugget

Discovering your unique voice is like finding gold:

  • At first, you hear some sound emanating from you.
  • Like searching for a gold nugget, you release a tiny sparkle of sound properties permeating from somewhere in your throat cavity. It may be a strange sound, and you're unsure if you're singing or making different noises.
  • Then, like a gold nugget, you carefully remove the debris (doubt and fear of singing) on the chance you might find a vocal nugget.
  • Next, you clean and polish your vocal nugget just the right way with proper exercises, and like discovering gold, you find your singing voice. It's been there the entire time. All you needed to do was polish it up to uncover the sparkle.

Anyone Can Sing

I believe that we can all sing. While living in Hawaii, I recorded a complete vocal course titled "Anyone Can Sing." It meant with such success; it became the #1 singing program.

Regardless of what others may say about your voice, I know you can become a better singer.

Your singing voice is an extension of your speaking voice supported by air. Maybe this notion sounds too easy. Or perhaps you think that only a privileged few are 'born to sing' - you either have it or you don't. Hogwash!

While it's true many people are born with a beautiful and unique voice (I'm not discounting this fact), it doesn't mean that the rest of us have to spend our lives just wishing we could sing. Singing is available to everyone. It's also a learned skill. This means the more you learn and apply singing techniques, the better you will sound.

Singing should never be a struggle - it should feel easy and natural. Bring a little desire, dedication, and discipline to this lesson, and I guarantee some excellent results.

And now, grab a glass of room-temperature water, and let's start releasing your singing voice.

The Vocal Cords Need Constant Moisture

Keep your voice well hydrated during all vocal exercises.

Keep your voice well hydrated during all vocal exercises.

Don't Tell Me You Don't Want to Sing

I've spent the better part of my life teaching thousands to sing. Anyone can sing as long as they have the desire. And anyone who says they don't want to sing isn't being entirely truthful. It's like saying, "I'm a flower, but I want to remain a seed and never blossom or grow. Leave me here underground where I can hide. Don't water me, feed me, or allow the sun's rays to bring me warmth. I'm safe below the surface, where I can't make a mistake or risk someone laughing at me.

Easy, quick, introductory, vocal warm-up for singers

Wrapping it All Up

So, how did you do? Have you learned how to release your singing sound? Keep at it daily, and you'll continue to sound better. Keep experimenting with different vowels followed by words.

Remember: Air is moved out of the lungs and towards the vocal folds (chords) by coordinating the diaphragm (belly breath), abdominal muscles, chest muscles, and rib cage. Posture is essential. Keep the chest high and quiet. Correct inhalation involves stomach muscles, ribcage, and even back muscles.

What you have learned in this lesson is how to free the natural voice. These lessons must be practiced daily, weekly, and even monthly until voicing your sound becomes automatic. You are a human instrument and, as such, need to develop and strengthen your voice. Liberate your natural sound first before applying the proper vocal technique.

We live in a world of tension and reactions. This tension is carried in our shoulders, neck, and back. Tension is the enemy and diminishes the efficiency of the natural voice. We must remove the blocks that inhibit the beauty of the natural voice.

We each have a kaleidoscope of possibilities regarding our singing voice

Physical awareness and relaxation are the first steps in releasing your natural sound. As you practice the exercises outlined in this tutorial, begin to assess your progress by asking yourself, "how does it feel"? Instead of "how does it sound"?

Remember: You were born with every singing tool. You have a body (your instrument), lungs for breathing, ears for hearing pitch, vocal cords, and a complete resonating system for amplifying sound. You also have lips, teeth, a tongue, and a jaw for articulation. You have it all!

Sing with joy!

Questions & Answers

Question: How do I know what my voice type and my vocal range are? It’s weird because my speaking voice is deep so it surprises people I can sing as high as Leona Lewis. I do feel comfortable up there, but at a lower register not so comfortable.

Answer: The best way to learn your vocal type and range is to seek out a qualified vocal teacher, sing for the teacher, and you'll be told what your range is.

Question: Can anybody sing?

Answer: Anyone that speaks can sing. Singing is an extension of the speaking voice supported by breath from the diaphragmatic muscle. We are born with all the tools needed to sing. We all have vocal cords, a breathing system, and resonation chambers that produce sound. Singing requires all three.

Our human body is our instrument with which we can produce a beautiful, rich, range of endless variations in tone and expression. Our vocal instrument is meant to be used and the more we sing the better we will get. Using the proper techniques such as breathing by using the

diaphragmatic area, knowing when to take a breath and how much helps our voice to sound it's best.

Hello GlenR

Your comments have made my day! You are exactly the type of person I write for. So, thank you. I'm so pleased that this article about singing has met some of your needs. I wish you growth and joy as you join Rock Choir. You'll be a welcome addition. Thanks, again.

Glen Rix from UK on February 23, 2018:

Great encouragement for those of us who would love to join a choir but don’t have enough confidence in the sound of our own voices. This article complements the tips in the two library books on voice coaching that I recently borrowed, so I will be trying some of your recommendations. In fact, I am so eager to join Rock Choir that I’m going to print your paragraphs on vocal exercises. (And I’m looking forward to a couple of hours watching one of my favourite tv shows this evening -The Voice UK. We can all dream - even at my advanced age. LOL!)

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on October 22, 2017:


How nice to see you here. Thank you for reading my hub and commenting. You will find your singing voice by applying the tips mentioned here. It takes some time but with practice and a little confidence your lovely voice will emerge. I wish you luck. Contact me anytime.


Freya Cesare from Borneo Island, Indonesia on September 20, 2017:


This is very informative article. I will try it since I love singing but not really good at it. Wish me luck.

Thank you. :D

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on August 01, 2017:


Thanks. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow? :)

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on July 30, 2017:

Hi Matt

I paid a visit to your bio. You are quite a talent! So happy to see you here. I, too, drink diluted APC every day. Do you have you tube videos?

Matthew Frederick Blowers III from United States on July 29, 2017:

Very informative aricle considering a sing every day, have written and recorded almost 800 songs and drink a LOT OF DILUTED APPLE CIDER vinegar with the mother in it to ease the flem and

throat glitches. i will try some of our techniques now as well.


Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on June 26, 2017:

Thanks Robert for sharing these nice comments. Keep on singing and enjoy the music!

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on June 26, 2017:

Hi Marlene

You have provided such a great service as a worship leader. You're right on target by encouraging others to use their speaking voice to sing. Thank you for your support.

Marlene Bertrand from USA on June 26, 2017:

These are all fun and easy lessons. I sang as a worship leader and would encourage people to sing by saying the same as you... if you can talk, you can sing. Now I wish I could have shared these wonderful lessons as well.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on May 16, 2017:


Congratulations! You've followed these steps and just look at what you've accomplished. I'm so pleased. Thank you Genna for sharing your success.


Hey, my friend...maybe your cat was singing along with you! You/re just great. Thanks for going through these singing steps.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on May 01, 2017:


You had me in stitches with the breath control comments. How true! I'm honored to get a "thumbs up" from such a vocal expert. I still want to hear that golden voice of yours.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on May 01, 2017:

Hello Peggy

You and I share the same great experience - singing in the car especially on long trips. Love it! Thanks for your kind comments Peggy. I truly take them to heart.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on May 01, 2017:

Hi Sha,

Your comments are so valuable. I need this kind of feedback. Trying to teach singing and speaking concepts when people are not present is a challenge for me so thanks for sharing your thoughts. Your support and encouragement are inspiring.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on May 01, 2017:

Audrey, this tutorial is easy to follow because your points are clear and simple. It's no wonder you're a very successful vocal coach. You're providing a very valuable resource to your readers. It shows just how selfless you really are.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on April 28, 2017:


I love your expression "great coaching skills here, like a gentle manual." Yes, belly breathing requires practicing a brand new way of breathing. Yet this form of inhaling and exhaling is completely natural. As I looked upon my cat and dog sleeping, I noticed how every breath was initiated by the belly. No chest or shoulder movement at all. As we humans begin to fall asleep we breathe the same way - from the belly (diaphragmatic breathing.)

Thanks my poetic and inspiring friend.

manatita44 from london on April 26, 2017:

Great coaching skills here, like a gentle manual.

"The Seeds of Singing Are Like a Rose." The poet in me loved this piece. Perhaps you can help the 65 yr olds. The belly bit is most difficult. My ability to 'feel' helps me a lot. Excellent Hub!

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on April 09, 2017:


Where were you 10 years ago when I was younger and had the energy to start my dream - Anyone Can Sing Vocal Studios? You're the best. Supportive, kind and even willing to try my vocal exercises!

And as for your doubt they will join you in full voice. :)

Hugs, my friend.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 09, 2017:

I grew up in a family that used to sing together whether in the kitchen doing dishes, in the car or elsewhere. It is a joy! You are doing a great service for people who think that singing is beyond their capability. The breathing exercises are very useful!

Audrey Howitt from California on April 03, 2017:

Love love sirens! And working with straws--funny, when you first start singing, it is all about getting the breath to move--as you become more accomplished, it is all about keeping the flow steady, and as you become more accomplished yet, it is all about taking more and more breath out of the tone and keeping it steady-- Really well done here Audrey!

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on March 28, 2017:

Hi Audrey. I took several steps in your tutorial, and was so pleased with the results, especially with "how to free the natural voice." This is a treasure, Audrey, as are you. :-) Thank you!

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 26, 2017:

My cat didn't appreciate my "huuuuhing" but I enjoyed the exercises and explanations you provided. Also, that photo of roses is gorgeous.

Robert E Smith from Rochester, New York on March 26, 2017:

When I was much younger I wanted to sing. I used to go to meeting groups where 2 or 3 songs were sung and I would be sitting next to different people each song. I noticed how differently people sang. I came to the conclusion that I would just whistle but I never learned how to do that either. Notes would be too shrill or too long. I gave up on singing until I discovered the recorder and now the ocarina. I know the sounds I make with my instrument are the ones I am supposed to make. I am bound and determined to have music in my life both played and sung but it isn't easy for someone as old as I am. I will keep trying. Thank you MsDora for making this process seem easy, the mark of a good teacher. (Oh yeah, I finally found a music teacher that is willing to teach an old timer like me. She is helping me make some progress. Slow and steady wins the race I've heard.) Bob.

WillStarr from Phoenix, Arizona on March 26, 2017:

OK, so I'm going to cut this one and paste it into my word program, wait until I'm alone (the dogs will just leave if necessary) and give this a shot.

BTW, if you ever do decide to open a chain of 'Anyone Can Sing!' studios, I want in on the ground floor because once people learn that even they can learn to carry a tune, it will be a bonanza.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 26, 2017:

Very helpful, Audrey. Going to get my water. I'm singing today. Thanks for the inspiration.

Martie Coetser from South Africa on March 26, 2017:

Oh my gosh, I am laughing at myself, as I'm doing what you're telling us to do all the way. And how wonderful to use my singing voice! It is such a successful way to relieve stress: Sing!

You are an awesome teacher and vocalist, dear Audrey!

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:

Dear Paula

You're the best! No one can out do you when it comes to commenting on an article. I feel like you're right here with me. (Wish you were...if I ever got a hold on you, believe me, I'd prove to you that you have a pleasant singing voice)!

Thank you for always supporting my singing articles. You realize it's been close to 7 years. Where has the time gone?

And I want to mention that singing alone is just fine. You don't have to have an audience to sing to. You get the same health benefits whether you sing in the shower or in front of another person.

Singing is a personal connection to our own feelings...a marvelous and healthy way to release emotions. It also wakes up our endorphins giving us a positive feeling which mimics morphine. (And it's legal and free). :)

So sing on dearest Paula. Thanks for coming by and I've missed you too!

Peace and love,


Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:


Good for you! You clearly love to sing which is all the more reason to re-kindle your singing. I'm thrilled to know that this article has had something to do with your decision to sing.

I hope your husband mows the lawn often :)



Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:


How wonderful that you have recordings of your late wife's singing voice! She was a true artist, singing with confidence and passion. Thank you so much for sharing this and a big thanks for being here.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:

Jay C

Well...sing in the shower my friend :) So nice of you to drop by and comment. Appreciate it.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:

Hi Ruby

When you approach "the break" area of your voice, if you lighten your sound your voice won't crack. But be sure you take a big, big, breath before lift-off. Keep the sound light and fairly soft during this exercise. Keep working on it - you're a good student!

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:

Dear Mar,

I love teaching others to sing. Your kind, sweet words men so very much to me. I hope when the time comes for me to transition to my heavenly home I will still be blessed to teach music.

I also want you to know how much I love reading your book "The Rain and Everything". It has become my personal guide for inner strength. Thank you for sharing a rainbow of wisdom and love.



Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:


Being a part of a choir is much like being an instrument in an orchestra. Every voice contributes to the beauty and message. Thanks for sharing your experience. And thanks for the blessings my friend.

Suzie from Carson City on March 25, 2017:

Audrey.....You're such an excellent and patient teacher. Your students must love you~~~well, actually I'm sure everyone loves you! I've commented in the past on your hubs about singing & informed you I'm really not a singer. But in your writing, you continue to insist that if we can speak, we can sing. I DO believe you.

Of course, I'd have always given anything to have a great singing voice, but the reality is, although I love music and enjoy singing, I have to sing alone~~ in private.

Alas, Audrey, my appreciation and love for music is reduced these days to "listening, " which is still a favorite pass time. I also used to LOVE to dance & could dance very well. Now if it's not a slow dance with a partner, my old-not-so-limber-anymore-body does not LIKE for me to move quickly nor rocking and rolling--ly!!! If you know what I mean.

No matter, my lovely friend. I had to stop by and say Hello. I've missed you! Peace, Paula

Mary Wickison from USA on March 25, 2017:

I am excited to try this and will do so when my husband isn't in the house. I used to sing in my car with the radio and loved listening to music.

He doesn't like hearing it so I will wait until he is mowing the lawn.

You've given me the confidence to rekindle my love of singing.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on March 25, 2017:

It is an inspiring tutorial for those who want to sing and are hesitating to do it. My wife is a wonderful singer who is no more now in this world. But, I have ten songs recorded from her voice and keep listening to them often. She used to sing very loudly at times performing her daily tasks without any worry of other people around.

Thanks for encouraging people to sing and enjoy their voices.

Audrey Hunt (author) from Pahrump NV on March 25, 2017:

Oh, Bill, you've got me laughing so much my cereal milk is draining from my nostrils. :) And as for my improved writing - well - you're the wind beneath my wings!

Thanks for your continued encouragement and advice.



Jay C OBrien from Houston, TX USA on March 25, 2017:

Sounds good, but I must stop because my wife came home. She does not like me singing.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on March 25, 2017:

The book continues to grow, right before our very eyes. Great are on a creative roll and it's wonderful to see. Carry on my wayward . . . well, son doesn't work there, does it? That's why I don't write poetry. :)



Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 25, 2017:

I sat up straight and did all of your instructions. My voice broke when I was doing the jet liftoff. I know it takes time to learn how to control my voice, but I must say that I am doing much better. I just have to remember to practice more. I love to sing! Thank you for all you do in helping us use our singing voice better.......

Maria Jordan from Jeffersonville PA on March 25, 2017:

Dear Audrey,

You are indeed a vocal coach and a teacher of the most generous kind. Your love of music / singing inspires me.

What a wealth of information and affirmation here - will be back to practice these exercises.

Have a peaceful weekend. Love ya, Maria

whonunuwho from United States on March 25, 2017:

Yes, singing adds so much more enjoyment to our lives. As a choir member for several years in my youth, it always made me feel as though I was a part, and being able to express myself meant a lot at that time of my life. Thank you for this nice reminder and work ell done. Blessings to you and family, my friend. whonu
