Ok, the voice lesson thing is turning out harder than I expected. I’m having trouble getting the kind of sound my teacher is asking for. Sometimes I get it, but 1) I don’t know what I’m doing to get that sound, and 2) I can’t hear a heck of a lot of difference between the desired sound and my usual sound.
I think I need to stop being so Type A and expecting instant results after only three lessons. I will just relax, continue practicing diligently, enjoy the process, and approach it as an exploration of how my voice works. In time we will discover how to get there! Hopefully before I get entirely sick of “Lasciatemi morire”! :-)
