The musical arts institute has offered me a golden opportunity to express my feelings in song. I love singing but in order to project my voice to its corrective range, voice lessen has taught me ranges I never new I had. I use to sing in my comfort level which in the past was fine, but learning how to sing the right way has open up venues that I had only dream of involving myself in.
