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 […]

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 […]

No matter how mortifying . . . this is where I am, at the beginning of learning a song. English is […]

Back in the Saddle Again

It’s been a long time since we talked about the voice lessons. I think the last I wrote of it was approaching the Fall recital. Well.  Things have changed. After the recital, my first coach announced that she was moving out of state at the end of the month.  We had only three lessons left, […]

Fall 2015 Recital Prep

Music. Had a master class the other week. I had a make-up lesson right before . . . I did fine during the lesson, but the master class performance was not so great. It was nerves.  I had nothing to be nervous about . . . seven, eight people total, simply sitting around a living […]
