Ah, yes, I did pick a voice teacher, and it was #3, which I had early on guessed I would like best. And indeed, she surpassed my expectations, by not only being knowledgeable about music (her Ph.D. in music shows), but also easy to work with (she did not force me to learn from the 24 Italian Songs book), and who is also well connected to the classical singing community in my city! She is going to send me listings of opportunities to sing and perform!

So I am very happy, and looking forward to a satisfactory learning relationship with her. This will not be a traditional teacher-student relationship, as I will explain in my next post, but one where two minds meet and we teach and learn together. Bon voyage.
