Just curious if there are any fellow singers here. I've been singing (not professionally) on and off for the past five years. With each practice session, I find myself improving (it's getting easier and easier for me to hear myself whether I'm on key or off key). I don't have a new voice recorder yet (my old one -- voice-activated -- just would not allow me to record long enough to allow me to make a meaningful judgement on my progress). I need to find a decent one pretty soon -- I'm interested in hearing my progress. In the beginning, I was taught the basics (breathing, tone control, staying on key) by my grandmother. Since then, however, I've practiced on my own. I learned to read music from a piano class I took during my senior year in high school. Until recently, I've only been able to sight sing (that is, I couldn't sing along with others until I could see the music that was written). Pretty soon, I'm considering finally stepping onto the karaoke scene to develop my stage presence and confidence. Hopefully in a few years I'll be able to start singing professionally. I'll record myself and post some MP3s on here for those that are interested in hearing and critiquing me. So, who else here sings for fun?
