Q: You have an awesome voice,, How long have you been singing..
A: Thank so much for your kind words. Honestly since I can remember. However, I really started playing piano first BUT I was always singing around the house. My family ALWAYS played music so it is just in the blood. I started a kind of training when I was 11 or so by joining any school chorus or even musicals that I could. By 14 I started getting voice lessons here and there as well as piano lessons. However, with the piano lessons, I had already been playing since I was 7-8 and my piano teacher was VERY strict and classically trained so that didn't last long. I was pretty much self taught by ear and I had to learn how to sight read when I entered singing competitions through different schools I went to. I actually didn't find my "true voice" till I was 15 when I started belting out both Wasted Time by Skidrow and Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) by Journey who was a HUGE family influence. That's when I knew I could really do this music thing. I was not very good but I didn't care and just kept practicing for hours till I got better. I still do train my voice and hone my playing skills for piano and guitar or any other instrument I can get my hands on as any singer or musician should. We are always growing (hopefully) as we get older and you have to keep that growth and learning going throughout your life.
