What an absolute joy it was to work with up and coming talent Emma-Jane and Calvin Glen.
HARMONIES were on the agenda. Mixing up the blending of two different and distinct vocals. The result was liquid gold to my ears.
It is amazing what you can achieve in one session! From Emma-Jane taking her smooth angelic lead vocal and adding rock cool vocal vibes of Calvin sprinkling in some dynamic technique, harmony, range, confidence, and perseverance and you have a totally fresh take on a song.
Well done guys!
One happy coach x
So this is a picture of me looking like Queen Neffatiti, a 4000 year old Egyptian..".ok crazy lady take your meds" I hear you say...
Well I can assure you I am all there...well mostly I think.
This was me on Saturday, dressed up ready to act and entertain for a Murder Mystery! I don't think many know this about me but I am actually employed (sometimes) to run around and unleash the thespian in me. It doesn't happen a lot but when it does it feels pretty good. (Especially because I can act besides my husband!) Bonus.
As fun as it is. It is pretty scary sometimes, like singing (Which I find more comfortable doing indecently!). You need confidence..projection, range, pitch, and the look of enjoyment on your face which I know from the students I teach (when they are up on stage) can be so hard to do when all they want to do is just sing the darn song(s) not forgetting the lyrics.
The more you sing/act (Not much difference) or present yourself on stage, the more it kinda becomes easier...yes it does...trust me. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I want to run off and eat some chocolate wear my granny slippers tucking into a good book, but once you see the joy and fun the audience/fellow murder suspects are having then you remember why you do it.
I still warmed up beforehand. (Just like I do for singing)
TO BE OR NOT TO BE THAT IS THE QUESTION
To be of course Sir Shakespeare!!
