Singing in Spanish! Welcome Antares!

A big welcome to our 3rd student, Antares! Antares is originally from Mexico and sings a variety of styles ranging from rock, to pop to RnB and even some epic Disney anthems!

Almost every student I work with, has the goal to either find out what their range is, or to extend it. But what does that mean, look like or sound like? Your range is basically how far your voice can go. Low or high. Like many singers your first experience of vocal training may have been in a choir or in classical training. You may have been told which box you fit neatly into. Some students come to me saying, “I’ll never sing that high note, I’m an alto”. It makes me crazy and a little dishe
