Question starters...
What don't you like about your voice? Ask why it's there. What part of a song is hard? What's happening? What do you want to do as a singer? Ask where to start. What are you trying that's not working? Let me help.

I love belting & dynamics…but if I’m not using my voice regularly my talking voice gets hoarse for a little bit after I’ve sung. I need to be more diligent in the whale calls and lip vibration warmups and just sing more…or be disciplined enough not to belt lol

Haha—it’s basically sliding low up high and reverse whoooooo hitting all the pitches. A video of all the weirdness would be hilarious
Introductions
Hey there! Let’s see…currently by trade, I practice and teach interior design from a Biblical perspective. Historically, I thought I was born to sing. After high school, I gave myself six months to pursue my dreams. In that time, I sang on FoX News, National them for the Railcats, sang in the Hardrock cafe in Chicago for the Nashville Star, auditioned for IN Star. I was the 3rd runner up for the Walter E Smith jingle and a round two American Idol reject. That was the end of the road for me. I prayed on my way out and heard God say “their hope is in something else, your hope is in Me.” With vocal coaches and auditions I often heard “you’re too squeaky clean you should be a Christian songwriter. Never knew that was a thing. I wanted to be the next Celine or Shania! 😆 so I put the dream away. Joined the church choir and praise team for 17 years. Then in 2020 God tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I was ready to talk about music with Him. 😳 he put a guitar in my hand. I took an online challenge and WON & got the travel guitar I have now. And He whispered to lead a generation in the worship of Spirit and truth. I started with my own family. And it’s been beautiful raising them up in music. For a little while I lead the church kids choir. But mostly enjoyed sitting in the floor playing worship and praying over the sensory room kids. Recently, I left my church of 26 years and now I no longer use my voice outside of private worship in my home. I’m not chasing things anymore…just enjoying time with the Lord so He is all I want above all else—and she He want me to finish books and grow design and lead worship it’ll happen. I’m in a weird season of stillness right now but I love every minute with the Lord. And worship Him most everyday vocals:guitar—and worship him through study prayer daily. I could have summarized this with “BA has a complicated relationship with music.” 😆 Nice to meet you!

Hey there! I'm Kim Snyder, your coach
My parents said I was born to fill out the familiy trio. 🤨 But being the loudest got me into session singing in my teens - HA! 🎤 Been working professionally ever since - except after doctors completely destroyed my voice TWICE (including severing my vocal cords).💀 Yeah. I've learned what a voice REALLY needs the hard way - and all I wanna do now is show you how to master your own and NEVER take another useless lesson again.🎉

Awe! What a sweet photo/memory!
Saved the BEST for you!
Sure. There's more 'impressive' stuff. But I still love this one best, I wrote this for my then 12yr old son who was driving me CRAZY and posted it for revenge. Cuz that's just one of the superpowers of a singin' mom! #eyesinthebackofmyhead

This was great! We have a few family music videos too—but mine are probably not appropriate to share 😆
