300: THE Essential Conversation That Every Singer Must Listen To - with Matt Ramsey
If you listen to 1 podcast episode this year, and you are a singer, this is the one.
We cover a TON of fascinating topics like:
We chat about:
The most common frustrations and struggles that singers have. Why vocal progress isn’t always linear - especially for beginners. Vocal Range - quality over quantity The symptom is not the cause of the problem Differences in the way that voice teachers communicate and finding one that communicates and vibes with YOU. Why knowing your voice type isn’t always helpful “Keep what works for you, and throw away the rest.” Why what you learned in choir may not be serving you as a solo singer. How experimenting with different vocal ranges can help bring out your own unique voice. Finding the identity of your voice. Why too much singing knowledge and “buzzwords” can make actually improving your singing more difficult. The problem with most vocal pedagogy programs and certifications. Finding a voice teacher that fits your needs, goals, and learning style.
