FIRST OFF, A HEARTFELT THANKS TO ALL WHO STOP BY TO LISTEN TO MY SONGS AND WHO LEAVE KIND WORDS AND COMMENTS. I TRY TO VISIT YOUR STUDIOS AS WELL BUT NOT EASY TO GET TO ALL OF YOU. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
I heard about this site through one of my Karaoke friends and thought I would give it a try. I can start by saying I am an amateur singer but have been belting it out since I was a toddler.
I sang in school chorus from 3rd grade through high school, church choir, and even in a college women's choir 2004-05. I have a grown son and finished an elementary teaching degree with a minor in Fine Arts/Music in Dec 2009...that is where I had the recent re-training in voice and, boy, has it helped!!
Now that my son has grown, I am totally reconnecting with my passion for music and am realizing just how versatile my voice really is! I can read music pretty well and have dabbled in violin, trumpet, percussion, and piano, but would love to refine my piano skills and learn a little guitar really bad (BIG fan of Melissa Etheridge and Jimi Hendrix!). My musical tastes are very broad from ancient to modern and multicultural, but mostly I appreciate classic rock, Southern rock, soft rock, early jazz, blues, and r&b (including Motown and Disco). I listen to these the most and have sung most of these as well.
Trained in opera, classical, and hymnals but developed asthma a few years ago, making it harder to control my pitch and breathing--very frustrating for someone who's been singing all of her life
I am having fun recording, and listening to so many great singers on SingSnap. It's a nice way to meet new people who also love to sing. Take Care.
