    I think those cartoons just go to show that when it comes to singing…you’ve either got it or you haven’t!

      The voice is an abstract instrument to be sure. I have a friend who teaches vocal lessons and I’m constantly making naughty jokes at his expense involving the phrase “deep throat exercises”.

    • I respectfully disagree. The voice is an instrument like any other and requires technique. I feel that the point of the cartoon is to illustrate the intangible nature of the technique. Since “the voice” is inside us, we have to use visualization rather than tactile sensation to access it.

        I’m going to have to agree with candicelala. While some people have the natural talent, it is very possible to learn how to sing.

  7. As a choir director who plays piano, this cracked me up!! Definitely the difference between left and right brainers within music too. LOL

    For the voice lesson, it does help. That’s the first lesson we did today as I set in at my 8 and 9 years old nieces on their voice lesson while waiting for my son enjoying a different workshop for his interest in drawing/painting. summer workshop jumpstarted yesterday, I say this is a good tip. And your beautiful blog is a good inspiration for my aspiring cartoonist. Kudos!

    Ha, very true. I love it when my voice teacher gives me abstract prompts. It helps immensely to visualize.
