    Default New beginner but very very eager to learn!! :-)

    Hi!
    I have been floating around here for a bit, I really enjoying reading all the different posts and advice, but I have now finally plucked up the courage to join you all (please be nice!!)!

    A little about me:
    I am classically trained on the piano... but gave it up years ago.. wish I never did now!!

    I have been taking classical vocal lessons for just under a year now (started Jan-Feb this year) after years of wanting to do so. I have improved in leaps a bounds over the year and I know I have a natural nack for music as such, but I am not that naive to think that is all I need! I have a range that sits around C3 to A5 (can go to a high c but is a working progress for it to come naturally without straining) and am looking to expand more!!

    I am VERY fascinated in classical music which I think people think is odd from where I am from (I don't come from a classical supportive background.. or money for that matter) and my age.

    Over time I would like to come on here and ask little questions I guess I can not figure out myself or from others and also make some friends that have similar tastes so I don't feel like such a loner with this passion ;-)....
    With saying that I would ask you all for someone with a new, fresh but, very eager mind... a student of classical music what pieces would you recommend that I just listen to (not sing) for inspiration?


    Thank you for your time
    Take Care

    Really, start anywhere, with an era, a specific composer, genre (Symphony / concerto / tone poem / chamber music / string quartets, etc.)

    BUT, if you already have any particular pieces or a composer -- things you like, it might help in 'tailoring' further suggestions for you. Many here are quite considerate and good at that :-)

    Schubert ~ Adagio from the quintet in C
