Another Day, Another Lesson

I had another voice lesson today, as I do most every Monday at 3. I'm really starting to notice a substantial difference over the past two months. I can handle more demanding music without intervention, and I'm getting a feel for specific practices that don't seem like much but amount to a whole lot.

For instance, I'm getting more and more accustomed to forming the "ah" sound with a brighter quality essentially by thinking of moving the sound toward the front of my mouth. That isn't exactly what happens, but adding a "toothy" quality makes the vowel much more effortless, which translates into a great many words suddenly falling into place, which translates into being able to think about something else, like actual musicality. I'm still not at the point where I can just sing difficult music in a fully musical way without having to concentrate on technique issues, but I get a bit closer each week.

I'll be able to break that glass any day now.
