Still Alive

Taking a break from the Weekly Virtues for a bit. They were a good idea, but couldn't compete with my other good ideas. I bought a new needle organizer, and then made labels for all the pockets. Rather nice, but they could use another set of eyes or three before I put up the final … Continue reading Still Alive

You asked for it — Me Singing

Yep, me singing. The song is Why?, made famous by Roger Whittaker. The whole family liked him way back when, and this was in the song book I bought. I've been singing it myself for the last week, and never actually played it on the keyboard. Yesterday my teacher played it, and it turns out … Continue reading You asked for it — Me Singing

Something I didn’t want to know about singing

When you're singing really well, from the listeners' perspective, it might sound really terrible to the singer. I believe it, in theory. We hear ourselves through bone conduction. We also hear a different amount of resonance. My teacher says sometimes she still needs to listen to a recording to tell what she really sounds like. … Continue reading Something I didn’t want to know about singing

My Singing Teacher is Really Good

After only five lessons, I sang Opera at the River Run Centre, in front of hundreds of grade 3/4 students. Well, I guess it was more like "with" hundreds of grade 3/4 students. I went on a field trip with son's class. They saw Romanza . Three tenors and a piano trio, doing classics and … Continue reading My Singing Teacher is Really Good

February is almost over….

So, what have I done? I've discovered there are some really good bloggers out there, with interesting entries, but I'm not one of them. Too bad, so sad. I finished FlyLady's 31 Baby Steps and the house is much more comfortable. My parents called on a Friday to say they were getting in the car, … Continue reading February is almost over….

If not now, when?

Yesterday I had my first singing lesson. Half introductions, half mini-lesson. Good grief, Mom's "You can't sing" and "Don't be silly" sunk in deeper and firmer than I'd thought. Then I compounded it by watching the Idol auditions. Repeat to self as often as necessary: I am doing this to have fun and to do … Continue reading If not now, when?

I Did It! — Singinging Lessons

Yep, singing lessons. I've wanted music lessons ever since I realized plunking away on my friend's piano with her lesson books wasn't working. My parents wouldn't shell out the money for a piano and lessons, sigh. I had two good years of clarinet in grade school, but the high school teacher was a total waste … Continue reading I Did It! — Singinging Lessons
