Can’t Sing? Who told you that?

Tom Waits

I just saw a voice student whose father told him “you can’t sing” in front of the whole family. So many of us are shamed as kids that we “can’t sing” and we carry this story throughout our lives.  Singing is simply muscle and breath training.  And believing in yourself! You don’t have to sound perfect.  Heck, there are many famous people out there who don’t sound “pretty”.  Hello Tom Waits?  Billie Holiday? (Add your favorite singer here).  They touch us because they sing from their truth.
