Learning how to... WHAT?

I'm just back from a really hard and rewarding voice lesson: the new goal for a new semester? Begin to learn how to belt. *faint*

It's super exciting and so different from what I'm used to! The other exciting part about that beyond a completely new challenge, is that the piece I'm working on is "Home" from Beauty and the Beast, which is ONLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE MUSICALS OF ... well... just about all time.

To go back to belting. WOW. HARD. Yes that's all I can really say. It's going to be so much work, but I really think I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.

In other news, this is the third day (at least) where it has been SUNNY!!! Which is just as well, because

I never thought I'd get tired of snow, but here I am, almost sick of the stuff, and it's only February. Not a good sign. The only thing to do then is watch The Snowman and drink tea (or hot chocolate). BUT I still have to go to work and do classes and such... shucks.

Thursdays have become quite the music day! My voice lessons are at 9:30 in the morning! (Yes, it's hard to wake up early enough to be able to warm up properly before hand...) then I do homework until 12 at which time I go to work, then at 2 I go straight to music theory class, which is a lot of fun...when I'm not falling asleep (which I shouldn't be today).

There's also archery tonight, which reminds me that I need to go send out a reminder email.

Well, I'm off for food and work!


  1. WOW!!!! I wish I could sing let alone learn how to belt. That's going to be so much fun! I would love to hear you sing.

    And YAY! Archery!!!

  2. Aw. "Supper exciting" doesn't mean then that the dinner menu has improved... Sigh.

    Does your voice teacher give you any indication that one can learn how to belt in a single semester? This would be so amazing.

    Following up on the1pen's comment (I would love to hear you sing, too...), can you "post" an example of your singing on this blog???

    Sadly, the dinner menu has NOT improved much. I've been eating a lot of salad as a consequence... so perhaps this is not as bad as it could be.

    I don't think I'll be "good" at it in one semester, per say, but I think I will have been able to make a significant amount of progress.

    I'll see what I can do about posting a clip of me singing.
