EXCERPT FROM THE FREE BOOK




EXCERPT FROM THE FREE BOOK ON THIS BLOG:


RATE YOUR SELF WITH THIS TEST

On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being excellent and 1 being poor, rate yourself on the following:

1. INTONATION  - Are you on the note, above it or below it?

2. RANGE  - Can you get the high notes, the low notes and the ones in between?

3. ENDURANCE  - Do you get vocally tired or last for a long time?

4. ARTICULATION- Are your words clear and easy to understand?

5.  VOCAL USE versus ABUSE – Do you experience any pain, hoarseness, loss of voice, during or after singing?

6. SING IN KEY - Can you “carry a tune”?  Can you sing without switching keys?

7. CONNECTED VOICE - Does your voice “crack” or “break”?  Does it sound like you switch gears or hear a drastic sudden change in your sound?

8.  BREATHING - Do you know how to breathe?

Without hearing and seeing you, I cannot assess your problems but I can offer some advice on each topic.
