Okay I have another passion besides writing books and being a part of Story Time Felts. I love music! I really, really do. I took piano lessons for about 15 years and I have taken vocal lessons (and continue to take) for about the same amount of time.
Music has always been important to my family. Growing up, we all learned to play the piano and then focused on another musical talent as well. My older sister taught piano lessons, my brother played the trombone, my other sister played the violin and the cello. I focused on singing and loved it so much because I could accompany myself on the piano.
I think that music is so important and so inspiring. I also think that everyone who has a desire can learn how to sing.
So I wanted to announce here what I am doing next weekend. I have been working very hard with Sage Mountain Studios owner, Craig Hancock, for nearly a year now. We have recorded original music, wrote songs, and planned and planned for our upcoming Vocalize workshop.
I have taught vocal lessons for over 12 years and have often wished that I could fit more time in the day so I could teach more. It's tricky with toddlers :) I am excited to have the opportunity to teach so many students at once with our workshop. We hope to offer this workshop a few times a year and we have had a great response for our first workshop. Here are the details:
