Been a while since I’ve done one of these updates. But since my singing lessons are often linked to my writing/creativeness and/or take me out of my brain for a bit, I thought I might as well start these up again.
Today my lesson was about raising my energy level and challenging myself. For years, I’ve seemed to have a preference for songs that are either just below my range… or above. So… today I sang two songs that challenged me in both directions. The stupid thing is that I can reach those high notes with barely any trouble while just sounding them out. During a song however, I tend to lock my body from the chest down when it comes to higher notes, meaning I’m not relaxed while singing them, pushing them out instead of letting the notes lead my voice. Which is something we’ll be working on for the next couple of weeks.
That said, I had a very enjoyable lesson and realised I’m capable of not quite fucking up Amy Lee’s beautiful lines in the second song of the day
The first song today was Broken by Lifehouse.
While singing it, I realised that the lyrics fit one of my MCs from BLIND TRUST (A finished first draft I’m editing)
Second song Broken by Seether ft Amy Lee.
