'Concert' doesn't mean standing up like a target in front of thousands of strangers. It means coming together. It means harmony.Gayle Forman
Lovely followers, I wanted to let you know that I am going to make that video about speaking pitch (I swear!) but I won’t be able to get that done until next week at the earliest, due to other commitments and general busy-ness. I haven’t forgotten! I promise your patience will be rewarded.
As always, followers:

janehoffmansoprano This is from his book published in 1925, I believe, by G. Schirmer, titled “Singing: A Treatise for Teachers and Students” (or pupils, I don’t remember.) I found it at the Interlochen library three summers ago and it’s a fantastic book on bel canto technique and his philosophies on performing and singing. It’s extremely helpful and insightful!
Oh this is good to know! Thanks takenabackdrop! Herbert Witherspoon was my teacher’s teacher’s teacher (wow that is confusing) so I would be very interested to read more about him.
