Free Voice Lesson

This is a fabulous parody that will have you in stitches if you've ever known any singers.

My favorite lines include "A scale is something... it's on a piano... it's the notes of a piano," and "Singing higher... you lift your eyebrows up like this... and lift your chin." Classic!

I love how developed her character is, from how she pronounces the words "sing" and "singer" to her facial expressions. She's put up a bunch of other videos of her "Miranda" persona singing, like this hysterical rendition of the National Anthem, which seems to be in about three dozen different keys:

Lest you think she's seriously attempting good singing in these videos, I think she's actually a real singer - "Miranda" appears to be the alter-ego for Colleen, who has several singing videos here.


  1. Sarah, you're my favorite person today. :) How did you ever find this? And how did you figure out that she's actually Colleen? (I'm quite sure you're right.)

    I'm sending my readers over here to enjoy it, too.

  2. I was just listening to these last night. The National Anthem is amazing because every note is a surprise - and yet's it's recognizable as that tune. It's wonderfully disorienting.

  3. I also really like that she has soprano and alto voices - it's like someone who can play violin and viola!
