Simply Authentic…Your Soul Voice is Calling. Healthy Onsets to Avoid Vocal Cord Damage

Surgery to remove vocal polyps, as Adele had to endure, can be avoided by having healthy vocal onsets. Be careful not to push in your throat, and refrain from harsh onsets with vowel sounds – this is important for speakers and singers alike. Take a look at this video for a demonstration.

Simply Authentic…Your Soul Voice is Calling. Have Fun & Kick Your Inner Critic to the Curb

Most people would be a lot more comfortable speaking or singing in public if they talked more nicely to themselves. We need to be patient with ourselves while we’re on the playground, learning. Take a look at this video, and you’ll see what I mean.

Simply Authentic…Your Soul Voice is Calling. Your Voice Needs Breath!

 

A lot of people don’t make the connection that every time we speak, or sing, we’re constantly exhaling. Try speaking and inhaling at the same time, and you’ll see what I mean! Having enough breath behind your voice is critical for speakers and singers alike. Take a look at this video, and you’ll see what I mean.

Why am I using Barbie Dolls in these videos? You’ll find out in the next one!

The voice lesson affected me in ways I never imagined. I feel so much more inspired now. Thank you! -Lennon R.

In only a few lessons with Laura, my voice quality improved tremendously, both for singing and speaking. I’m noticing more resonance, clarity, and range. Laura has a great ear, and her teaching and coaching style feels safe, friendly and professional. She is supportive and stretches me. Her acting, singing, and speaking backgrounds blend beautifully to support presence and confidence in her students, as well. I’m excited to continue studying with her, and highly recommend her if you want to improve your voice. -Cricket W.

To Your Voice,

Laura

Simply Authentic: Your Soul Voice is Calling. Just Because the Chili Turned Out Sooo Good!

Simply Authentic: Your Soul Voice is Calling. Just Because the Chili Turned Out Sooo Good!

Just Because the Chili Turned Out Sooo Good!

I woke up Friday morning knowing the lentil soup I’d made earlier in the week was about gone; almost out of leftovers, dagnabit!

I like to eat about as much as I like to sing. Pizza is okay once in a while; TV dinners, never. Whenever possible, real home-cooked food.

But what could I make for dinner with what I already had on hand? (With one exception – the fresh cilantro, which George kindly picked up.) Chili!

It turned out so well, I wanted to share the recipe with you. I’m a toss, dump, stir and taste as you go kind of cook, but here’s the recipe as best as I can approximate.

Laura’s Friday Throw-it-Together Chili

-Brown one small package ground beef, turkey, or leave the meat out for a veggie version. Drain if needed.

-Finely chop (food processor works great) half a bell pepper, preferably red, and 1/3 large onion and stir into meat in soup pot.

-Coarsely chop with scissors a bunch of fresh (the most fragrant one you can find) cilantro leaves – discard the stems. Stir into pot.

Add:

-1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes

-1 15 oz. can kidney beans, partially drained

-1 15 oz. can white northern beans, partially drained

-1 15 oz. can tomato sauce

-1 packet chili seasoning

-1 C water

-Small handful semi-sweet chocolate chips (a couple squares of dark chocolate, even better)

-2 generous TBSP oregano

-1 generous TBSP cumin

-2 TBSP cayenne pepper sauce (like Franks Red Hot)

-Few dashes Tabasco sauce

-Freshly ground pink Himalayan sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Stir together well, bring to a boil, and simmer for 45 minutes. Sing while occasionally stirring.

Serve with grated sharp cheddar cheese on top and saltine crackers, cornbread muffins, bread of choice, or corn tortillas.

Enjoy!

Please spread the love and pass this along to a friend!

Every time I have a lesson with Laura, I come out having learned something new about my voice, and my breathing. I try to use these techniques on a daily basis for acting, singing, and general speech. I recommend Laura to anyone hoping to improve their voice. –Noah G. (13 yrs.)
