Vocal Coach Comments from Dane Chaflin:
There’s a nice sense of emotional connection in your singing. Be careful about what I call “Approximate Pitch Syndrome,” which is where we are very close to pitch, especially on short or fast notes, but not quite giving them the attention to accuracy that they need. You’re much more accurate on your big high notes, but some of your pick up notes are a little under. Just being aware of this issue is usually enough to fix it.
Marlena’s Bio:I’m a warm, exuberant person. I try to always open right up and sing from the heart, with an attitude of gratitude. I’m so lucky that I sing as my career. I’ll never stop writing new songs and striving to reach people’s souls through song. Music is the most beautiful art form there is, in my opinion. It reaches way down, deeper than words alone can express. The combination of music and lyrics is so powerful, don’t you think? When I sing and make someone cry – and this happens almost weekly – I know I’m doing what I was put here on earth to do. I return home satisfied that I’ve made a meaningful impact in peoples’ lives….I should be doing this every single DAY.
