  • Milica P: Great lesson !
  • Kaylan S: Thanks I really needs that
  • Ula M: I am a singer and I found this pod very interesting.I like the idea of kind of "playing " with my voice to creat different sound as you alluded to . Instead of trying over and over to achieve the same quality of sound.Could you cover extending the upper part of one's range for women, please? I get constricted up where I should still be able to sing.Also, I would appreciate some warm-up exercises, please.Thank you so much.
  • Corey D: So interesting!
  • Jeshua B: Great lesson! It was very informative. ????
