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”

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”

WVW Early Bird Registration Ends March 31!

World Voice Weekend Early Bird registration ends March 31! I’ll admit it, after an initial flurry of signups, registration is going more slowly than I hoped. Which is baffling to me, because people have responded to this program as follows:   Unfortunately, I’m not hearing, “Take my money!” I have enough people to fill the masterclasses, butContinue reading “WVW Early Bird Registration Ends March 31!”

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!”

One World, Many Voices – World Voice Weekend

I am very excited to announce that I am planning events not only for April 16, World Voice Day (which, hopefully, will be very different from last year’s), but for the entire weekend, which I’m calling World Voice Weekend. The theme of WVD this year is “One World/Many Voices” and that will be reflected inContinue reading “One World, Many Voices – World Voice Weekend”

A Stroke of … Scenius?

I just came across the term “scenius” a few  months ago in a blogpost – I’m not sure where. I thought it might be Seth Godin, but I didn’t find it. Scenius is defined as “communal genius” that occurs in scenes rather than genes. It was created by musician Brian Eno and is intended toContinue reading “A Stroke of … Scenius?”

World Listening Day – July 18

“Unless I’m willing to be changed by you, I’m probably not really listening.” — Alan Alda I went to a singing teachers conference last week and learned more about listening than singing. One session I attended was called “Children Will Listen” and covered the topic of teaching children between the ages of 5-12, a demographicContinue reading “World Listening Day – July 18”

World Voice Day in a Time of Silence

Every year, World Voice Day seems to coincide with something that prevents me from celebrating it. Last year, it was during Holy Week. The year before, I was teaching all day at Howard Community College. And the year before that it was Easter Sunday. And this year, we have a pandemic. And all performances areContinue reading “World Voice Day in a Time of Silence”
