Jubilant

The previous post’s song was for that late night ritual, The way you’d lay in bed as a teenager, Lights out, House still, Staring at the ceiling, Your cd player whirling, Studio headphones on, Revelations and Relaxation. This song, though — This is for the morning, Drinking your coffee, Facing a day of chores, Swooping […]

Hate-Love

To my relatives: Expletives. You can avoid. (The soaring nature shots are calming, but I find the strange boy distracting.) (Isn’t THAT my entire social biographical discourse.) (Is he wearing Ducky’s shoes from Pretty in Pink?) (And what is this haircut? And the emoexpressions? Wait, is this a male?) (I HAZ SO MANY QUESTIONS.) —- […]

Little. Gray. Birds.

Not much new to talk about. ~Still deciding what to sing next; have narrowed it down to four (maybe five) songs so far.  One song has three different languages in normal usage . . . one of them being English.  I record little trial runs to see if each song is remotely suitable and/or too […]

Ruinous Recitals and Routine Renovations

Oh my word. The Recital:  Disastrous.  As in:  I was a disaster. This was the first recital I’ve had to pay to attend. Yes, pay.  And on top of that, expected to bring something for the reception buffet. So, it’s hilariously, maniacally so, THE WORST . . . AND the most expensive to boot. I’m […]

Il Bacio BDay MidWay

****Silly me, I thought this was . . . tolerable . . . but today during my lesson was told that she was so frustrated that I kept swallowing all my sound, and that she wanted to shake the “fairy voice” right out of me, b/c she hears the proper operatic diva sound IS in […]

We All Scream for Ice Cream

My voice lessons are still going strong. Nothing remarkable about that, really.  Most weeks see SOME improvement somewhere, but like most things it is also a slow process. I use my microphone and a few bits of recording equipment to get some outside perspective of how I sound.   Obviously this is almost always a […]

So We Begin.

I’ve debated and procrastinated putting this out there. But. Ultimately.  The argument that always wins is the one about how you can’t know how far you’ve come, until you see where you started. So. No matter how mortifying . . . this is where I am, at the beginning of learning a song. English is […]
