I'm male, 20. I've been teaching myself how to sing for 2.5 years now and my voice has hardly improved. Getting a teacher is out of the question. I've made sure to use correct breathing and have read a lot about technique and excercises.
What am I doing wrong?
I talk in a soft voice could this be holding me back?
I practice about 4 hours a week, often I'm driving and cant be standing. Is this an issue?
My range is only about an octave and a bit and hasn't improved and when i try to reach higher notes my voice gets very strained.
Any ideas or pointers are appreciated
