Soul-Growing Season

One of my classmates from Westminster Choir College recently posted a Kurt Vonnegut quote that I wanted to share with my wilds4estill followers:

Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

— Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

As an artist/teacher living during the time of COVID-19, I have felt the effects of the pandemic on the arts. It’s been devastating. I hope to see a return to lively artistic activity very soon. Artists need it for financial and creative survival. The world needs the medicine the arts provide.

At a time of such uncertainty, I have struggled with making an argument for vocal training at a time like this. I think Vonnegut makes it for me.

If you are ready to nurture your singing skills, and your soul, please contact me. I’d be happy to help you.
