Just had to share. I had my first singing lesson tonight, I mentioned on a previous blog response that I had booked it and now I am SO glad I did.
It was pretty hard work. Turns out all the muscles that need to be super strong for singing are these dratted stomach ones - now v glad I have been working on them so much! Even though they flattened out and make me look better, it seems they aren't nearly strong enough yet for voice control... Back to work, because they hurt like buggery after the lesson.
However. My point is that having decided life was too short to put things off any more I am LEARNING things again, for the first time since university, really, and it feels utterly amazing. If there's anything you've meant to learn but never taken the plunge, just DO IT!
PS For any opera lovers among you - the man says I will be singing the top A flat of "O mio babbino caro" in a few weeks, can you believe that? Just listened to the Callas version... <gulp>.
