Workshops for singers!

Hear ye! En guard! Mind the gap! (Well, maybe not the last two.)

My voice teacher, Emily Romney, is holding several workshops for singers this spring, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to take their singing to the next level, while perhaps being leery of any major additional time commitment in your life. Check it out! She is a warm, lovely person with an amazing amount of wisdom about vocal pedagogy.

Here is some more info:

Do you feel your singing voice has greater potential than you can realize on your own? Would you like to know more about how your voice works and improve your singing?

Here's an excellent opportunity to do just that.

"The Living Instrument & How It Works"

Emily Romney, workshop leader

This series of three Sunday afternoon vocal workshops are designed to develop greater sensitivity to and confidence in your breathing, body alignment, and tone quality. Each session will include singing activities, useful information and sharing of ideas.

Workshop Dates (all Sundays) in spring 2014: Feb 16th, March 16th & April 27th

Friday cat post!

This program in Louisiana looks fantastic - cats, vets, and prison inmates, all helping each other.

(I'm totally aware that perhaps I should rename this blog "A Cat-Lover's Blog, and Also Occasionally Musical Tidbits," but I do have some ideas on revitalizing things in this online corner in a month or two. Stay tuned!)
