Notes from Miss Hui, my singing teacher

  • "I listened to your songs online, and it sounds like you are in pain."

  • "Your instruments are too loud in the mix."

  • "Breathe like water filling a balloon."

  • "Don't think of breathing in. Think of filling up with air."

  • "Mix your head voice with your chest voice."

  • "Press your tummy to make air come from belly."

  • "Practice making your falsetto sound less stupid."

  • "Sniffle when you run out of air to get that last breath, like you have the sniffles."

  • "A-E-I-O-U, A like Ah, E is eh, like cafe, I like eeeee, O like awe like awesome, U, like owl with corners of mouth together."

  • "Stay in pitch by thinking of Slinky toy, move pitch slowly up and down, no bumps."

  • "You men like to stand with your feet out like you're macho. But you don't always have to stand like you're the Jolly Green Giant selling frozen corn."

The Jolly Green comment is hilarious.
