Basil's Notes from Ms. Hui's Singing Class

"August 3 is student recital night, so think about what you want to perform, maybe Nina."

"Breathe like water into balloon."

"Practice flowing your pitch down smoothly, saying "HI------____there," without tensing your lips."

"When you sing some of these notes, you sound nasal. I don't like that. Barbara Streisand sings with nasal voice but she is professional and people like it when she does that, but for you, I don't like it. Push air out of mouth, not nasal, by thinking about sending the air out of your mouth only. The brain is a powerful instrument."
