GUEST,Diana Can anyone learn to sing (168* d) RE: Can anyone learn to sing 28 Jan 03

Hello My name is Diana, and I just have a few things I'd like to know. I am 21 and I've always loved to sing, when I was younger I would always sing to Opera like music especially this band I love Nightwish, metal band with a Female vocalist Opera style vocals there excellent. Anyway, With never taking lessons my voice was pretty good,not as good as I'd want it to be though. I wish I would have taken lessons when I was young, it seems like that's when everyone takes lessons. Instead at the age of 12 I took guitar lessons which didn't work out because I didn't have a passion for it. But now at the age of 21 I decided to take pravite Operatic voice lessons, I found a teacher in my area who charges $40 an hour It's a bit expensive for me but worth it. I've only had 2 lessons so far and now I'm learing how to breathe the right way, how to stand and how to keep my abdominals the right way as well, and I'm learing a simple song. I practice everyday for an half in hour. I guess what I am asking do you think I'm to old to learn being that I'm 21? and never before had much experience in singing. Do you think some people can't learn to sing even if they've practiced for years? My teacher told me anyone can learn to hold a note and sing but if they don't have a good voice then they won't be good. The thing is I already kind of have a good voice I just need to learn how to sing the right way but I have not develop my voice yet. with alrady having a good voice do you think these singing lessons will pay off? Well that's all So sorry it was so long, Thank you for taking the time out to read this I appreciate it. I hope to hear from you soon take care bye bye
