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
