"In Pursuit of the Timbre in my Voice" Interest in singing began in the bathrooms, and singing to my daughters who even today appreciate and remember most of the songs. I will always remember R.D. Burman's words 'There is good timbre in your voice'; I am trying to find that timbre. A couple of months back I read this article in Bangalore Mirror, of Times of India Newspapers on 'From MUG TO MIKE'. I immensely liked the Mug to Mike concept, as though it was specially conceptualized for Bathroom Singers like me. Also at the same time I seem to like the person in the photograph. This seemed to be an opportunity to test the 'TIMBRE in my voice' at a real studio. I must thank the author of the article for publishing the contact phone number at the bottom of the article and my journey began, to explore the possibilities, meeting and interacting with youngsters (me being the youngest in spirits), co- enthusiasts and of course the gentleman singer himself with a Silken voice – Sunil Koshy and his most enthusiastic support in this venture and otherwise – his better half Archana. It was a thrilling and great experience when our singing voices were recorded (without music), critically analyzed for various aspects of singing light songs including suitability. Each one of us was given a copy of the recorded song/s along with the analysis, starting with strong areas and ending with areas requiring attention and improvement. During this session itself, many tips were given to understand shortcomings and how to improve. For those of us who wanted to advance a step further, a one day advance workshop was conducted to guide us to overcome mistakes and learn ways to improve our singing. A simple but comprehensive method for learning and practicing basics, breath control, pauses at right places and graduating to exercises to perfect notes, sur/sruti, to improve range and fluency, control and accuracy, and voice control, harkats etc., was taught. Anyone requiring assistance was always welcomed, even individually. Many co-enthusiasts, in spite of their busy working schedules, seem to want opportunities to improve further. The enthusiastic efforts put in by Sunil and Archana is really remarkable and deserves all the appreciation from all of us BATHROOM SINGERS, nay, ASPIRING STAGE SINGERS, Inshallah leading to further glory. May their tribe grow bigger!
