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.
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!
