I’ve Started Taking Singing Lessons!

I’m so excited to talk about my experience being a student of voice for the first time in a long time!

For voice lessons with Daniel Formica:

  1. Hard to imagine you needing them , with all your knowledge , but good on you for realizing that a singer needs lessons for life ! No matter how good he or she gets!

    1. 🙂 I think I’ve mentioned my background as a worship leader before in other videos. I know I have in my bio on my website. Thanks for watching and commenting!

  2. I am so happy for you, that you have decided to take singing lessons, you already have so much knowledge and a lovely voice, that’s why I keep following you, I truly like all of your videos, I really like the way you teach, I really enjoy them thank you so much for shearing your new goals, it gives me a lot of motivations, I would love to take singing lessons with you in person, keep up the good work! 🙂

    This is so inspiring! I’m so happy for you. Whatever a person can do to make them happy can only bring happiness to everybody. Looking forward to hearing more about your lessons.

  4. Danny’s a champ! He’s where I went when I got stuck. The exercises are simple in concept, tough to perfect (it’s a never ending process cause it can always be THAT much better) and are totally worth it. You end up finding all these little spots you never knew you had. Annnnnnnnnnnnddddd it’s super reliable come gig time. You just sing the words how they’re meant to be sung. no more guess work, no more analysing every nuance. As long as you’ve done the necessary work, your voice will just go where it’s meant to go.

    You mean actually SING??  Instead of doing scales all the time?  What a novel concept!   Karen, I don’t think this could come at a better time for me!  I actually like doing scales.  . . to  the detriment of SINGING!   I sing casually around the house, but when it comes to practice I  tend to do only scales and other exercises!  I’m actually  scared of singing SONGS at my lessons with my teacher.  We warm up on various sounds, depending on my voice  that day, but then when we start on a song I clam up!  I think you’ve just inspired me to take a different approach. I have a lesson with my teacher in a couple days and will address this!  Thanks so much for sharing your info and excitement about your LESSONS!   Have fun!

    1. I think it will be a while before I’m ready to sing songs using this new technical approach! But yes, scales and exercises can be a bit of a crutch for some aspiring singers. They’re almost ‘academic,’ so they feel ‘safe.’ But when we start singing songs, then it’s about art and expression and emotion, and the safety net is gone. I’m always so grateful when new students are willing to sing a song for me so that I can assess their current skills. It takes courage!

    This is really cool Karyn. The most successful individuals always have mentors and coaches. Keep that fire burning!!

  7. Yay, congrats Karyn! It’s refreshing to hear this from you, love the way you’re always being honest with us and take us along the path that you grow, not just as a singing teacher but as a human being as well, and that’s inspiring.
    You know I always study about singing all by myself with your direct helps a few times. It’s like a pride of singers which kind of like ‘you might be a better singer if you can still sing good without study with vocal coach….’. I also struggle with some issue like airiness, my cords are weak I guess so I always produce falsetto not the full sound that I wish you know. After watching this video, I feel inspired to take vocal lesson now 😉
