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?
Firstly I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply, I am in the middle of studies and nearing to the end of the year is very frantic!
But thank you soooo much for the links, I absolutely love them!!
I am going to really sit down and study them over the next week and if you don't mind let you know what comes to me
Once again thank you for your time
