deciding to try something that is a stretch for me- but i am insecure.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

i have been a "singer" for my entire life. many of my early memories involve singing.

IT IS ONE OF MY GREAT JOYS.

i have been singing in choir(s) steadily since 1998, and occasionally before that.
I have been performing in community theatre for 12 years.

here's the problem…….. I CANNOT READ MUSIC. emoticon emoticon

i am very fortunate to be able to sing "by ear". if i hear something 3 or 4 times, i usually have it, unless it is especially difficult. but, i am realizing that my life would be

SO MUCH BETTER, and EASIER, and MORE ENJOYABLE

if i didn't struggle with not being able to read the music.

i also say "I CANT READ MUSIC" as a safety net, perhaps??? that way if i make mistakes then i have an excuse???????? it is a crutch.

so, here's the thing…

what might i achieve if i were to overcome this obstacle? what musical doors would open for me? how high would my CONFIDENCE SOAR??? Well, i am going to try and see!

Wish me luck!

Goodnight, Sparklers.

  Even learning the basics will be a big help in being able to voice a note (and you probably know more than you think!) emoticon
