Have You Ever Been Told You Can’t Sing?

When I was 18 I auditioned for the Musikhochschule in Munich. I had always liked singing operas, and played piano in concerts starting age 4. As a 4th generation classical musician and singer I wanted to see where this love for music was taking me.

I had prepared an aria in my range, somewhat high. She interrupted me, and instead had me sing a scale in my mid range, at which I sucked. After a few notes she interrupted me, saying I’m too old to start learning to sing classical technique, and that it was too late, and I would never amount to anything.

I was 18!

Needless to say, I shut up. I never sang again…

Until at age 32 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and Deepak Chopra told me that my throat chakra was completely blocked. He said if I wanted to heal I had to learn to sing, speak up and express myself.

The rest is history.

I performed for almost 10,000, taught hundreds of private students and clients, wrote a book, and developed an online course specifically designed for non-singers.

Everyone deserves to use their full voice. It keeps us healthy, happy, full of energy, possibly longer lived, and hopefully disease-free!
