Learn Something New
"Vocal Explorations!"

Hi Friend!

I recently began working with a new voice student this summer.  When I asked him why he was taking voice lessons, he answered, "Because I really need to learn something new." 

I was so honored to partner with him!  What a joy as a teacher, to get to help someone acquire a new skill!  And as all of us who are singers know - with increased SKILL comes increased JOY.  

This experience reminded me of an article I had encountered this spring on CNN entitled "Learn Something New - Your Brain Will Thank You." 

The article references studies showing that learning a new musical instrument (or singing!) releases the pleasure neurotransmitter dopamine in your brain. 

People who listen to music or or sing are actually getting high on music

This is one of the reasons I offer the "Vocal Explorations" class at Resound NW.  This class is focused on receiving pleasure and joy through making music. 

Impressions from "Vocal Explorations"

"I gained a sense of the possibilities."

"I learned a willingness to explore more unselfconsciously when in a group setting and while using my voice."

"I gained confidence to show myself easier than before."
The next group of "Vocal Explorations" classes begins August 8.  Read more and register online.

Happy Singing!
