"One needs a voice teacher to learn singing technique, to solidify his singing foundation, and to add more delicate techniques as he continues his progress. Strengthening, training, and stamina-building are taught and drilled in the voice lessons. A voice teacher suggests and assigns repertoire; first, as a learning tool, later as a showcase to be added to the student's own portfolio."

Waiting for an inspiration

Singing is strenuous on the body, and one needs to learn how to space it out so that the body will get much needed breaks to rest and to restore strength.

Pradichaya Poonyarit Voice Studio | Lehigh Valley, Easton, PA

When I was in my dream-catching career-chasing period I used my singing voice every day; and, therefore, I was in great shape vocally.

Physically, however, I must admit that I was tired. Singing is strenuous on the body, and one needs to learn how to space it out so that the body will get much needed breaks to rest and to restore strength.

Now that I have stepped upon another level of my life, I find myself teaching more and performing less.

Singing to teach is not quite the same as singing to sing, and at times I got myself into a place where my body couldn't call up the very technical tool I needed to create a certain singing effect.

I was baffled, puzzled, and most certainly frustrated at myself for not being able to do something that I had been doing so well -countless times- throughout my singing life.

Then, I realized what was missing was stamina -the lack of an ability to sustain my physical strength required for singing. I was out of practice! I pictured myself in my head as the healthy and shapely person -who exercised and worked out daily- that I used to be. However, I stopped one day. I got all out of shape and became a slug.

The picture inside my head of me as a slug I did not pull off really well. -I just could not allow that. I soon decided that something must be done to get me back on track.

A plan was made: in order for me to get back into shape vocally, I must work on the voice every day.

Then, I found myself gridlocked with another obstacle: every day I thought about moving the voice, but every day I failed to do it.

This caught me by surprise. I am a singer from head to toe. I breathe music in and out. I create art and share it with the world. I teach people ways to express their arts.

Where did my inspiration go?

This was a serious matter. I had the reason why I had no stamina, but with the lack of inspiration I would not be able to get my body in shape for the voice again. Trying to be as calm as I could, I searched my heart.

I didn't come up with anything. A good amount of time was spent soul-searching. I just didn't feel "it."

That's it. I didn't feel "it," and that was why I was in this rut from the beginning. I couldn't even find "it," which was the reason for the other "it" to be lost in the first place.

All of this were too much for me. I shook it off. Next thing I knew, I was standing in front of the mirror in the voice studio. Firmed and centered, I placed my body. I started the "s" breathing exercise -with the gentle push of the muscles toward the inner wall of the body on each exhalation. "Ssssssss......."

I don't recall how much time went by, but I was satisfied that I was able to go through my vocal regimen and worked to strengthen my techniques.

Right around the same time, I found my inspiration -which was- NOT to be inspired.

Waiting for inspiration? -Don't. Just DO, just BE.
