Welcome to “Enjoy Your Singing”!

Don’t you enjoy singing? Don’t you wish you could just sing all the time with a beautiful sound? With your friends, singing along with the radio ( of course, only if you’re not driving, because it’s preferable to focus on the road instead of the song right? 😉 ) , karaoke, events and so many other places?

I personally love singing. It has always been one of the dearest things to my heart. I enjoy it so much, whether I’m singing alone or with a group of people, whether it’s with the radio or with my piano, singing makes me happy. And I suppose it makes a lot of people happy, the best thing is there is no age when it comes to singing, and everyone can sing whenever we put our minds into it. The thing is, we don’t always use our voice, our breathing etc… the right way, that’s why it becomes harder for us to sing and we just stop doing it if there is anyone around, or even if we’re alone, or we sing our heart out in even a worse way and laugh it out just to make sure we’re not being judged. But this is sad and we should stop doing this. If you really want to sing, I’m here to help you do it.

A little story I would like to share with you

Back to when I was a young girl: I started playing piano at the age of 4 on my own, but it was at the age of 8 that I started taking proper piano lessons. The musical background and my love for music came from my dad because he plays several instruments by ear, and ever since I was born, I remember singing along with him, to all kinds of songs. I loved singing, I just did it all the time, without thinking about my voice or about the way I sounded until one day; when I was about 11 years old, I was at a hotel with my family, and there was karaoke night, so of course I jumped to sing, and here was the surprise, I remember singing “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion, I got a huge round of applause! I was so happy! And this is how I started listening to myself and I loved singing even more! I felt it was easy, I didn’t have to make any effort to do it and I sounded great!

But this happiness lasted for about only three years. After that, I got an allergy and I couldn’t sing anymore. My voice changed, everything changed. I just didn’t like it anymore and I felt so angry every time I wanted to sing. “What happened? Where did my voice go? And why do I keep coughing? I’m not even sick like I don’t get what’s going on here!” – this is what I kept on asking myself, I felt terrible and I thought there was no hope for me to sing anymore, I just lost it. But after some time, I got enlightened “What am I doing? I shouldn’t quit doing it, I should make an effort to be able to sing again since it’s one of my biggest passions.” So I started singing again, even if I sounded bad, even if I wasn’t hitting the right notes. I just thought that it’ll get better with time eventually. The thing that bothered me was that this time, I had to teach myself how to sing. It was so natural before, I never thought about what I was doing, and it was never hard, so how am I going to do it now?

I was still in school, studying a double program baccalaureate, and I became an advanced piano student. So basically my time was full, I didn’t have time for anything else, that’s why taking singing lessons somewhere was out of question. I wanted to teach myself how to sing from home, so I started searching up online sites that could help me sing better again, but I never got the answer I was asking for.

So when I started university, I decided it was enough waiting for the right time, and I auditioned to start taking singing lessons, even though I started working at teaching piano and my time was still full. I wanted it so bad, I prayed for it to happen! AND OMG I GOT ACCEPTED, which was very surprising to me! I felt very thankful and hopeful! And I decided I wouldn’t let this go anymore.

I started taking professional singing lessons and eventually I got it! I had to learn how to breathe, how to pronounce the vowels while singing, a lot of stuff that I couldn’t find online. Now, I can sing again, I feel comfortable doing it again, and everyone gets so amazed when I sing. I never thought I would get back to that point, but I did, it happened. This is why I believe that nothing is impossible. When you get the technique and you practice it, everything will become very simple and beautiful. The technique is even very simple. It’s just that you should really get it.

It was such a long journey for me! And it wasn’t an easy fast one. That’s why I want to share with you all I’ve learned, everything that helped me sing again. It might take a bit of time, but you’ll get there. Just believe in the process, believe you can do it! And you will do it.
