Summer Singers Society for Students 8-11

I have always said that I’m not a teacher of small children. It’s not that I don’t believe that young children should take lessons. I do. I just haven’t been sure that I’ve been the one to teach them. So I’ve focused on reaching students 11 and up. But I did some thinking and realizedContinue reading “Summer Singers Society for Students 8-11”

Session Singing – Being One Voice

A few weeks ago, I put together a few people to sing on a virtual choir video for World Voice Day. The day before WVD, I released a sneak peek of the video but didn’t really talk about it that much. (I had a few other things on my mind.) Putting the video together wasContinue reading “Session Singing – Being One Voice”

I’m BA-ACK

Well, that was fun. Both my vacation and World Voice Weekend. Honestly, I could not have asked for either to have gone better. In the case of the latter, there were no internet outages no-shows inappropriate behavior (not even from me – mostly) boring clinicians trainwrecks of any kind The only thing that went wrong was that thereContinue reading “I’m BA-ACK”

Changing my Vision

I have been very good at writing regularly for the past year. I did decide to go from thrice weekly to twice weekly in 2021, and I’ve kept to that. Till this week. I missed Tuesday. And I forgot to write out a schedule for my April blogposts, which I usually do on the firstContinue reading “Changing my Vision”

World Voice Weekend Will Transform You (yep, I said that)

I have decided to extend Early Bird Registration for World Voice Weekend through April 5 (Easter Monday). My business coach, Michelle Markwart Deveaux, asked me if I’ve made it clear in my marketing how I believe people will be changed by World Voice Weekend. I think I have, in my blogposts, in my social mediaContinue reading “World Voice Weekend Will Transform You (yep, I said that)”

Everything You Need to Know About World Voice Weekend

It’s a little less than one week till Early Bird pricing expires for World Voice Weekend, and if you haven’t signed up yet, maybe it’s because you’re wondering just what you’ll get for your tuition. Last Thursday’s post covered most of clinicians and their background, but here’s a little more information for you about justContinue reading “Everything You Need to Know About World Voice Weekend”

Yay! I get to PRACTICE

How often do you say that? If you’re me, hardly ever. It’s usually, “Ugh, I have to practice.” Unless I have a gig lined up, in which case, the “ugh” is missing because I am looking forward to the gig. Or an audition, which I endure because it might get me the gig. But practicingContinue reading “Yay! I get to PRACTICE”

World Voice Weekend – One Month to Go!

(Well, actually, it’s one month till the second day of it, but you know what I mean.) Last week, I wrote about our acting sessions with Izzie Baumann and Matt Bender. Today I want to talk about the rest of my clinicians and the variety of things we’ll be offering. Singing is a whole-body experience,Continue reading “World Voice Weekend – One Month to Go!”

World Voice Weekend: Exploring the Voice in Acting & Movement

There’s nothing quite as awful as listening to someone present information in a monotone (Anyone? Anyone?) or seeing someone performing a scene where their affect doesn’t quite match what they’re doing. World Voice Weekend isn’t just about singing and listening to singing, but all kinds of voice use. How do you use your voice whenContinue reading “World Voice Weekend: Exploring the Voice in Acting & Movement”

Curating and Cultivating Community

And curiosity. And creativity. And cleverness. I really like words that begin with the /k/ sound (I figured that sounds better than saying “I like C words, ” which was what I started to type and then said, “Oh wait…”) That’s what World Voice Weekend is about. I strive to have my studio be aboutContinue reading “Curating and Cultivating Community”
