Change your singing
It's a joy to discover that, after years of having my singing knowledge expanded by Chris as one of his students, there's still lots stuff in this podcast that I've not heard before.
These guys know many, many things; and it's fun to hear them talk about them so passionately. I can't wait for the series to start. In the meantime, I need to go and get me a straw...
Mr Peter Saul Blewden
I have been lucky enough to have played principal roles in Musical Theatre productions in Londons West End and in Theatres around the world. Productions of Les Miserables, Hair, Rent, Whistle Down The Wind, Burn The Floor and Legally Blonde.
The podcasts are a great idea and very helpful, get your questions and problems flowing in. The industry needs young, enthusiastic performers and teachers like these two 'Chaps' to make singing and the ART of singing approachable and a joy to learn about and improve.
The boys are SOOOOO right there is so much to learn and you never know when you are going to have a PIG of a period with your voice when you panic and fear your 'loosing it' and you'll never warble like TOM JONES or TINA again and your forever going to sound like a Cat being eaten by a Fox at midnight.
Great work boys. I love it. People, get involved, listening and learning.
Loved listening to this podcast - great information and enjoyable to listen to. I would like to also say Chris has been teaching my daughter for over a year now and has improved her voice enormously - he really knows his stuff and makes her lessons enjoyable. The advice about the warm ups is so true - even from something who is completely tone deaf I can tell the difference in my daughters voice when she warms up and when she doesn't
