WELCOME TO “SINGING WITH MANY VOICES”

I have long wanted to start a blog in order to share ideas with those of us dedicated to singing – be it as a student, a professional, a musician other than singer,  or just someone interested in the great lyric art.

I would love to discuss various topics all pertaining to this vast subject.  Already I have had requests to deal with:

Auditions
Voice Categorization
The Future of Opera
Repertoire

and there are so many more topics out there for us to share.

I have always loved “maxims” said by respected and well known singers, teachers, musicians, etc. etc.  So, I will start with a couple to get this blog up and running:

“GOOD SINGING IS OBEYING THE RULES OF NATURE” – Thomas Hampson, Baritone

“THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL TO DEVELOP: IMAGINATION” (Inner ear and inner eye)
– Thomas Hemsley in “Singing and Imagination”

I will also be happy to discuss some of the better books on the subject.  There are some wonderful ones out there.

Have fun with this blog – it is meant to be a chance to share ideas.

    • I love your quote from Valente. It can be taken in so, so many ways.

      I am about to write my first real Blog this afternoon and tossing so many topics around in my head. Stay tuned. I am happy to have you participating. If you have a subject you would like to put out there just let me know.
