for many years now, i've thought it would be a good idea to take voice lessons. what has stopped me, you ask? primarily, the cost. that, and the motivation to actually find a teacher who wouldn't scare the bejeezes out of me.
my search ended this morning after church. our youth choir director, linden, sang a solo during the service, and i was -- to say the least -- impressed. to put it more precisely, i thought, "i wish i could make my voice do that."
i had seen a flier advertising voice lessons with her before, but didn't think seriously about it until today. seeing on the flier that her students must be at least 13 years of age, i approached her and asked if there was an age limit. she said there absolutely was not and, in typical linden fashion, jumped up and down while she asked if i wanted to take lessons with her.
so, we agreed that i would be one of her pupils (for a very affordable rate, mind you). once i find out my rehearsal schedule for cantate, i will set up a few dates with her. i'm thrilled at the idea that someone is willing and able to work with me to better my voice.
in the meantime, i need to go get ready for our church's evensong service tonight, for which i am singing in a small group. la-la-la-la!
