- You’ve got to find your signature. You need a unique sound.
- A good voice teacher is hungry to learn and is always curious.
- The key to a good teacher is being able to say, “I don’t know.”
- No one person had all the answers and no one method has all the answers.
- If you’re with a voice coach and they’re continually pushing something on you that doesn’t seem right for you then find somebody else.
- You can work with multiple voice coaches. It’s a good idea to get different things from different people.
Thanks for listening!
