Man Fined $149 For Screaming In His Car While Singing ‘Everybody Dance Now’ Too Loudly

“I was thinking they wanted to pass, but they called on the speaker ‘Please go to the right side.’ I stopped and four police came, two on each side, and checked the inside of the car. Then they asked me if I screamed. I said no, I was just singing.”

I found that gem on the most hilarious site ever, FML news.

Good grief…

I’m going to get in touch with this guy and sponsor him with a few lessons.

“I don’t know if my voice is very bad and that’s why I got the ticket, but I was very shocked.”

Bless his heart…

I talk a lot about learning the vocabulary of the technique here at Boulder Voice Lessons. It’s important to know the definition of the follow words:

Chest Voice
Falsetto Voice
Head Voice
Function Tone
Fundamental Pitch
Fundamental and Harmonic Resonances

…and the list goes on and on…

The ability to produce the sounds that these words define CREATE a complicated and beautiful tone. It’s a tone that people sit up in their chairs, or edge closer to the stage, to hear. They’ll say something like, “whoa… I don’t know how that person is making that sound, but I like it!”

That’s the sound we make here at Boulder Voice Lessons.

There are a bunch of ways to learn how to create this sound:

Private Lessons in person with yourz truly
Boulder Voice Lessons “How to Sing” YouTube Videos
Online Singing Lessons via Skype or Facetime or Facebook Messenger

But, the most complete way to learn to sing is to combine all those options.

So, get in touch with me, and let’s chat.  There are lots of changes afoot here at Boulder Voice Lessons, and I want you guys in on the ground floor! I can’t wait to share it all with you as soon as it’s ready.

Video Voice Lessons - Boom or Bust?

Can you learn anything from a video lesson?

Video Lessons are mainly there to peak your interest… to start a fire within you to have the desire to work towards that goal.

Take a martial art like Jiu Jitsu… it’s easy to get caught up in YouTube videos about Jiu Jitsu moves (right???? Or am I the only one here... crickets... awkward....)

You spend 3 hours (that you should have spent sleeping) going down the YouTube rabbit hole of watching matches, watching instructional videos, only to roll into the gym, and you find that all of your digital learning doesn’t really work out for you as you get chocked out over and over again (at least that’s my experience!)

If you’ve got a willing partner, you could work on the things that you learned, but the moves that a true-to-life class will drill, stick far better in your toolbox of tactics than you could ever hope for with a YouTube video instructional video.

It’s the same with the voice! You need to be able to sing for the teacher. The teacher must hear your voice, especially in the beginning, to see if you are doing the exercises correctly.

The Chest Voice Exercise and the Falsetto Voice Exercises are integral, fundamental steps to your progression. You can’t move on to the next level, or belt, unless you have a working knowledge of the fundamentals.

So get in touch, and let’s get you started off right. I’m here to help.

By the way, I am a current student of JiuJitsu at Easton Training Center in Boulder, CO. I can't recommend it enough as an exercise regime, but it's especially helpful for singers. It's an amazing workout; you’ll learn to control your emotions, your fears, but mostly your breath. 

How many times have we, as singers, felt nervous or scared of the stage? It's different for everyone, but there's nothing like perspective to make you not worry about stage fright, and a martial art, especially JiuJitsu, often puts you in uncomfortable physical and mental situations.

I've learned so much about the breath through these situations. It might not be for everyone, but if you're interested, and in the Denver/Boulder area, check out Easton (tell them I referred you!)
