How I Tuned My Voiceby Timothy Kelly
Hello Everyone,I was born into a musical family. They were all classical mu-sicians Piano, Violin, Opera, plus even Ballet, I was not thatkind of long hair. I announced to the world when I was 4that I wanted to be a singing cowboy. In the next few child-hood years, I pretended I was Elvis and after that, with abadminton racket and a towel on my head the Beatles. Itried to learn to play the guitar when I was 12, but my handswere too small. I had to make do with a few 2 finger chords. And finally when my hands were fully grown at 17 I got aGoya Classical Guitar. But I had to take classical guitar les-sons in return for the guitar. I progressed very rapidly, for my desire to learn to play was great. So I practiced a lot andtook the classical guitar techniques and applied them to oth-er styles of music - Elvis, the Beatles, Peter Paul and Mary,Chet Atkins, Jazz Guitar and Blues Guitar.My earliest childhood memories were of wanting to writeand sing songs. Now I had the guitar part down, I needed tolearn to sing. High school and church choirs were my firstsinging groups. And I got invited to parties to play guitar soeveryone could sing popular songs. People said my voicesounded like John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, and Perry Co-mo. That was cool. I simply wanted to sound like me.I was 19 and a freshman in college, when I first startedstudying and creating my Vocal Tuning Method. I had per-formed my first song at the local campus coffeehouse infront of a packed Friday Night crowd. One of my favoritePeter, Paul and Mary Songs. I'm In Love With A Big BlueFrog. I knew even then that audiences always enjoyed afunny song. This was the first time I had sung anywhere,outside of church, high school choir, and high school par-ties. I was very good on guitar and I sang all the right notes,but I wanted to sing better. In high school I was inbetween atenor and a baritone. I could not sing the top tenor notes nor could I sing the low baritone notes. I tried normal voice les-sons where they want to change the way you breathe, butthey did not work for me.I went to the college library and went down in the basementstacks, where the old books were kept. I found a book from1940, called Vocal Resonance, Its Theory and Practice byM. Barbereux Parry. Pasted inside the front and back bookcovers were ads for a correspondence course in Vocal Res-onance and information on private lessons at the BarbereuxSchool in Evanston Illinois. I was excited as I read the bookthe next few weeks and did all the vocal exercises. Myvoice started changing and became more musical as Ilearned how to Tune My Voice. It still sounded like me, justmore musical, as my voice got more in tune. My voicerange was increasing and I had more carrying power, just

from Tuning My Voice.When I believed I was doing everything right and hada good understanding of what was in the Vocal Reso-nance book, I wrote a long letter to the BarbereuxSchool, asking for information on private and corre-spondence lessons. And the same voice teacher, He-wa Weber, who had the lesson ads in the book 30years ago, answered me back. Yes, I still teach viacorrespondence and private lessons. I immediatelysigned up for the correspondence lessons. I was sentthe same correspondence lessons that M Parry andHewa Weber had written between 1918 and 1938.The lessons would ask me to write in a singing journalabout my daily singing and vocal tuning experiencesand then send them in to the teacher. Who wouldsend me a new lesson back and her comments oneach lesson. We had to way to send audio or videofiles back then before PCs and before iPods, CDs,ete.Meanwhile my voice kept changing, not like what hap-pens to many teenagers, but changing into a true liv-ing musical instrument. . I could sing longer with lesseffort, my voice range was wider, and best of all, myvoice sounded more musical. When I finished the cor-respondence lessons, I wrote again to the school andmade arrangements to travel 5 hours one way to Ev-anston for lessons on Saturdays.I went to Evanston every weekend for years, studyingand training to teach vocal tuning. Hewa Weber hadbeen teaching Vocal Tuning for over 50 years. Shewas Madame Parry's best friend and had been trainedby Madame Parry to teach Vocal Tuning when shewas a teenager. Now Hewa was teaching me, andsharing all her teaching methods and everything shehad learned from Madame Parry. She gave me copiesof all their published and unpublished writings on Vo-cal Tuning. She told me its time everything was rewrit-ten and expanded for today's students and I know youare the one who can write a new book on Vocal Tun-ing and use it to teach others to sing.So I did write a book on Vocal Tuning. Hewa reallyenjoyed reading my book and hearing all the storiessent to me from voices all over the world that success-fully tuned their voices and were singing freely as thesongbirds do. I am sure she would have enjoyed mynewest Vocal Tuning book, Teach Yourself Singing If You Can Talk You Can Sing, even more.
