my soooper-doooper awesome blog.
Because what the world needs is more blogs. Obviously.
the mommy blog years …
Let me explain: many moons ago when I was raising kids and teaching singing on the side, I had a (modestly popular) mommy/lifestyle blog. Which I stopped because: FACEBOOK (oh, and because: going back to school to learn all the #voicepedthings … but that’s a whole other blog post). I wrote that blog because I like writing and because diaries are annoying to me (I mean, NO ONE BUT YOU READS YOUR DIARY. WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT?*). And in the process of writing a blog, I found a wonderful community, most of whom I now get to see every day on FaceBook (hello darling Ilonka!). Or on TV (you know, if I watched TV) (howdy Pioneer Woman!).
The Vocal Instrument 101
So now I’m developing The Vocal Instrument 101 into an online series for voice teachers and I want to begin to create community around the series especially for newer or less-experienced independent voice teachers … and this blog is part of that plan.
Okay. Yeah. THAT’S FAIR FULL-OF-DISDAIN BLACK TABBY CAT. THAT IS FAIR. And, for your information, here are links to some of my favourites:
- D. Brian Lee @ Vocalability
- Justin Petersen @ Petersen Voice Studio
- Nikki Loney @ The Full Voice
- Sara Campbell @ Sara’s Music Studio
- Michelle Markwart Deveaux @ faithculturekiss
- Cate Frazier-Neely @Cate FN Studios
- Matthew Edwards @ Edwards Voice
- Cynthia Vaughn @ Singing in the Key of Me
- Marisa Gray Atha @ Three Sparrows Studio
But you know what? THEY’RE NOT ME!Also? My blog will be accompanied by videos. Because, UNIQUE CONTENT YO’ (and also, #notgonnalie, I like being on camera*).
SIGN ME THE HECK UP
Okay, so here’s what you do: definitely click on the ‘sign-up to get emails every time a blog post goes up’ button (and, by “definitely do this”, I mean, “do this if you really like having a fuller inbox than you already have”), and like The Vocal Instrument 101 FaceBook Page (because that’s where those OSCAR-FREAKING-WORTHY videos will likely show up first), and then sit back and wait for your very own singing teachery stuff to be delivered to your (already over-flowing) inbox. IT’S MAGIC.OH! And send me some questions. The first few posts will mostly be answers (which just autocorrected to “answears” which, WHY? I think we all know that “answears” is NOT A WORD. Although … now that I look at it … ) to questions that voice teachers have asked me recently so … if I never got back to you in person? This is why. (Also: soooorrryyy!!)
Alright. Let’s do this thing.
You can teach your face off … I can help.
* Yes. I am an extrovert. Why do you ask?
