Seth Godin does not like the term “taking” lessons. He feels that it sounds like something you have to do, like take medicine, or take your punishment, or take your lumps (that last one is mine). It’s not something that he associates with something you do voluntarily or eagerly.
Learning is different. Learning is something we get to do, it’s a dance, an embrace, a chance to turn on some lights.
I love this quote! A chance to turn on some lights. Working together to illuminate, to shine, to shed some light upon something that might have been in the shadows or in complete darkness. Or maybe something you thought you could see but when you looked closer, you realized it was something completely different.
You don’t take a workshop. You are part of one.
Creating community is one of the most important parts of having a studio. Supporting each other, working together, and being part of something – it should be an immersive experience, not a passive one. This is my goal as a teacher – as I once wrote, “I am here to inspire and facilitate.” And turn on some lights for you.
If you would like to be part of something, you can contact me to set up a Vocal Discovery Session OR you can register for my musical theater history & performance course, From Tin Pan Alley to Today, which starts next Sunday, October 18. There are only four more spots left – come and learn about the history of American musical theater and how the past has influenced what’s happening now (what, did you think Hamilton came out of nowhere?)
