To Add, Subtract

Every human being is born singing. You can already sing. You don’t have to learn how to do something you can already do. All you have to do is unlearn the improper vocal habits you’ve accumulated since you were born. Then, your voice will be free.

Brilliant. The point, I realized, was not to learn how to breathe properly, but to unlearn improper breathing. It wasn’t to learn how to project properly, but to unlearn improper projection. And it wasn’t to learn proper posture, but to unlearn improper posture.
