Re: What do you do about "helpful" comments from colleagues?

Excellent advice from Aureliano IF your team actually knows what they are doing. There is nothing worse for a singer then to have a voice teacher who doesn't really know... Darksoprano, if you are receiving that much unsolicited advice maybe there are things you need to address. Is the advice consis...
