Wow, it's the very first post of "The Choir Singer"!
This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, and today 4/21/11, I decided to get this blog off the ground and running!
My name is Kristin King. I am a twenty-something living in Florida and setting out to make my longtime dream of becoming a full-time musician a reality. I've always been a part-time musician, but I'm ready to make music my livelihood!
Currently, I teach voice and piano lessons to some amazing students. I am also a member of one of the best church choirs I've ever heard or had the privilege of singing with. Every Sunday, I sit down at the piano in our choir room and warm up the 100+ sopranos, altos, and tenors. And there's been one reoccurring theme that I've run into with choir members. Most of them love to sing, but they have no idea what they are doing when they sing or how to properly care for their instruments- their voices. Hence the idea for this blog: the Choir Singer!
In this blog, I will address common voice problems, trends, exercises, and questions from viewers. I will also keep you up to date on my journey as a musician and keep you aware of great resources that can help you become a better musician. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy this incredible journey!
