Many people feel a bit overwhelmed at the start of their singing lessons by the prospect of singing technique. They understand what is being talked about and most of it makes sense to them, but there's a big divide between understanding and actually being able to do it. That's usually the point where frustration and doubt creeps in and the dreaded little voice in the back of our minds will pop up with the question "Will I ever be able to do it?".
My reply to that question is of course a resounding YES! I've guided many pupils at different stages of their development through this difficult stage in their learning. I know from experience that this is a normal part of having singing lessons and if you hang on and keep practising in the correct way I can guarantee you will come out on the other side with a better understanding of your voice. Before you know it you'll be able to describe in a detailed and technical way how it physically feels to sing, which will give you the confidence to tackle any technical issue you might come across.
