Sing After Me

My voice teacher gave me a binder filled with soprano songs.

During our last lesson, we discovered together that starting with some songs in the higher range, it gave e a better insight for belting on the big and powerful pieces towards the end of our time.

I am very happy about this. Learning to do healthy and strong belting is what I have been wanting for a long time.
There were plenty of times when I used to sing a big song like "Wizard and I" or "Fine Fine Line" and I could feel the hoarseness from a crack in my vocal chords...but now!

I am so proud of myself for following my teacher's advice and moving forward to becoming an even better singer!

Only For Now

As I sit here on my couch in the front room of my house, I realize that...nothing productive is happening with me. Well, not much at least.

My vocal lessons are as usual. I'm working on getting strength back in my soprano, which actually is helping me do healthy belting on any big songs.
This is going to be great for coming in handy in the near future.

Lately I've just been imagining what I could do once I graduate.

More headshots, more audition opportunities! Mom even wants me to record an album of Broadway songs I can hand out to friends who could have connections!
She also told me about selling my own writing as eBooks on Amazon. We actually need to look into that a little more before settling on anything regarding that.

But right now I'll just plan my next video, fantasize playing my dream roles, and focus on earning that diploma. I'm almost where I want and need to be.

I just have to keep going.
