Thank you ever so much mate! I know there are lots of holes in my vocal but I'm never going to stop until it's ready to go on stage with. I know this is what I want to do now. Your words are so encouraging!

Most of the links you have given for HOTM and some of those Les Mis ones are all the same, and are all Stars mate. That's not right is it?


Yeah that was stars not heaven on their minds.

Ok we know you can sing the song well. Good. I found you're inturpurtation a little boring, it seemed like you were holding back a bit, trying to fit into some of the Balsamo stylings. From what I heard you have strong instincts and should trust them. Throw out the Balsamo influence (as much as you can consciously) and stay true to your instincts and you'll come up with something truly unique.

So like I said, you can sing the song...that's the easy part. It's time to break the song down as you would a scene or monologue. You really need to do a lot of work to hash out specifics. Things right now seem very general, a general fear and apprehension, a general anger. The more specific you can get the more moving your performance will be. You're objective is a little muddled, and it just seems like theres a whole lot of grounding you can do...there's alot of work involved but it's worth it. And don't feel discouraged, most people don't get this far.

If you're familiar with the Singer Method of approaching a scene or monologue, or if you have ever used Uta Haggen's 9W approach to building a character, either of these things will be super helpful. As well as Michael Shurtleff's 12 guideposts. If you have no idea what these are PM me and I'll explain further.

You're a refreshing voice. Someone with real potential who has guts. Now it's time to bring your performances to the next level. I really hope you consider putting the time in to do that, because it will be worth it, not only for yourself, but also for all those who have the privilage of seeing you perform.

Once again, that is a fantastic response. Just what I need to hear to help me along the way. I will need you to explain the Singer Method of approaching a scene further as I have never had a singing lesson in my life.
It's funny you say about Steve Balsamo, I don't knowingly want to sound like him, in fact I was singing like this before I had heard of him but as I have worked on my voice perhaps his influence has now kicked in a little.
Thank you again for your words.

wow, you said on your page that you're untrained? Does that mean you've never had a voice lesson? if so, that is truly amazing. You have a very nice voice. Gethsemane is one of my favorite songs from JCS and you truly did it justice, keep up the good work! :D
