The internet is filled with talented singers sharing their latest recordings, asking others what they think, questioning their ability, seeking information about technique, or simply searching for fans. The frightening thing is that a huge majority of these people have the potential to take their music to a professional level but just won't take the right steps, or find the correct information. Instead, they seek free advice from the internet and the majority of the time that information can be incorrect or is open for misinterpretation.
Here is a short questionnaire to discover if you would benefit from singing lessons....
