Finding Your Own Singing Voice (Part 4)

I’m going to start this off by saying that by no means am I a professional voice teacher. I haven’t gone to school and studied voice like many professionals. I’m merely an enthusiast with a ton of practice and experience who wants to impart that knowledge to others. Even more than having a decent range […]

You sign up, submit some songs, and if you’re chosen, you get to perform your song for judges and you win prizes and all sorts of prestige and yay yay yay! And every year, I can’t join. One of the rules of the contest […]

If only it were that easy

When a new season of The Voice begins in the early part of the year, I’m glued to the TV set. Well, sort of. In the sense that I set my DVR to record every episode so that I can watch it an hour into the show (avoiding commercials, hehe!) or the next day, commercial-free. […]

It’s Almost Here!

My new album of songs, that is! I’ve said it to my husband after listening to it in the car on the way to and from work on day, and now I’m saying it online for the world to read: I have never been prouder of any music album I’ve ever made. At last, everything works […]

Loving What You Have

A few days ago I wrote about finding your own voice and the importance of that in any creative pursuit. And today, I thought I’d talk about some of my journey in finding my own voice when it comes to making music. More specifically, how to love what you already have. For the first time ever, […]

When my sophomore year of high school rolled around, I decided to join the high school choir instead of continuing with band. My parents didn’t mind what school activity my brother and I did, as long as we did something we liked. Since […]
