QUESTION #1 (0:00)
"If you sound bad doing vocal exercises, does that mean you are a bad singer, or will never be able to sing?" - CallMeChris!

QUESTION #2 (2:08)
"I was wondering if one of your coaches could talk about tonsillitis and singing? Is it safe to sing while having tonsillitis? Does it even affect vocal chords? If tonsillitis is a reoccurring problem and doctor suggests to get tonsils removed, how would removing the tonsils affect singing?" - Esther Luna

QUESTION #3 (4:34)
"Is it safe to do lip rolls in my whistle register right when I wake up without warm ups? Because that's when I can do whistle register properly and I find that when I'm doing the Singing Success exercises (I wake up at 9 and do the exercises at around 12/12:30/1.00pm) I can sing higher with ease. When I'm doing the exercises, I can not access my whistle register from head voice. For example, after I do the exercises I do some lip rolls to get my whistle register going then I continue singing. So yeah, is it safe or should I refrain from doing so?" - Aaron Ryuzaki

QUESTION #4 (6:24)
"How do I know if I've reached the limit where my range cannot increase anymore?" - Paul
