Hi folks! Welcome back...almost. Some housekeeping as we gear up:
Wednesday, August 17 at noon is a required meeting for all voice students. Whether you're new or not, plan to meet with me in my office after the short Convocation.
Friday, August 19 is our first studio class. We WILL MEET that day (and every Friday), place TBA.
Purchasing music: all of you should be buying at least one book of music per semester, with my guidance. ALL of you should own the 24 (or 26) Italian Songs and Arias. If you don't, buy it now.
Repertoire assignments: some of you have requested to sing specific pieces, which as you know makes me very happy. Requests are highly encouraged, but if you have no requests, that's fine too. Remember that it's always fine to say you don't like something I've assigned...just so long you don't wait until your lesson time to tell me. Be sure you have *something* you've prepared at each lesson, i.e., please don't show up with nothing to sing only to say that you didn't like the piece I gave you. Tell me in advance!
