My journey comes full circle-but never ends

   (0 reviews)

I don't know about the rest of you out there in cyber-singer-land, but I am probably the number one procrastinator in the world. There is so much to learn and not all of it is singing. Long before I took up singing and the teaching thereof, I studied acting. In fact, it was during one of my first acting classes that I was introduced to my diaphragm and breathing with a book on my abdomen. This probably saved my future singing teacher lots of frustration. I never lost my desire to act and have done so a bit over the years. It was acting that led to my seeking voice lessons in the first place. What has this to do with procrastination? I have wanted to take some acting classes and did quite a bit of Googling for some time but I had my usual excuses for not signing up, $$$, time, $$$....Well, I received an email from the teacher yesterday indicating that a class that should have begun today had to be postponed until April due to lack of enrollment. I thought about it, mentioned it to my family, who said I should do it and without further procrastination I registered and paid my deposit. Here is a little picture of the kind of person I am. I immediately jumped into the car and drove to DC to find the church where the class will be held. As Oscar Hammerstein II wrote, "With me it's all or nuttin'". All I know is I have returned to where I started 40 years ago. And the best part is I can still use Sanford Meisner's acting technique with my voice students and help them be even better performers than they would have been before.
