I Am Not A Fish...I don't have a bad singing voice -so I am told. I don't sing out of tune (not always, anyway) and I have a musical ear. In fact, I have two musical ears. But I would like to have a very good singing voice :) I very much like singing and I very often sing in the car as my life is infested with situations which do not encourage singing elsewhere. My mother has a lovely voice and has always sung her troubles away since I can remember her. My father is a fish :)
My voice is very important in my job but stupid and lazy me, I never tried to improve my skills all those years. I attended a couple of seminars about voice and breath control but was too lazy to continue. I see now that after years of speaking a lot and ... shouting, my voice cracks at times and I sound like teenagers whose voices change and sound like young roosters.
Breathing well is very important. I had a student who followed a professional singing career and I remember helping him with his breathing exercises. He followed a specific routine every day with a variety of exercises, including voice, breathing and stretching. Very interesting.
Irrelevant detail: the group's logo is a painting called "The singing fish" :)
