GUEST,jeff I Hate the Sound..of 'classically trained' singers (146* d) RE: I Hate the Sound... 22 Jan 11

Being trained by a classical contralto in my mid 20s was the best decision I made in my musical career. She emphasized the importance of maintaining a physical regimen in addtion to any musical growth. She changed my life focus and for that I'll be forever grateful.

I continue to apply classical training in my singing to this day. While I don't have a 'classical voice' I've got the highest respect for those who do. But, I'm in agreement when an opera singer trys to tackle 'Ol' Man River, Wayfarin' Stranger or Amazing Grace, etc. W/all do respect...yuck.
