Unfortunately, due to a travel mishap, Shannon was unable to make the class this evening. Brent decided to schedule out the evening in segments, focusing on the learning and recording the song, so that we would be able to start performing our songs memorized in front of the class next week. Since I am helping out with the class, I got to be there for the entire time and listen to each of the singers. It was great to hear everyone's choice of song. They are all so different. It will be interesting to hear the progress they make throughout the class.
Truthfully, I am a little nervous to be singing in front of my peers. I think (hope) that is a fear for most singers. It is just so different from singing in a choir, opera or in the shower.
Luckily, Brent said that he thought “Come to Your Senses” was a good choice, very different from what I normally sing. The song is much more of a rock / pop sound – which I really like. He also helped me realize that I have a very strong head and chest mix voice, I just can’t belt with my chest voice. I will have to determine whether or not I will be able to belt for the show or if I should just go with the mix. Personally, I don’t mind the mix. I think it sounds healthier than straight belting, but we will see.
I am really excited to start performing in front of everyone next week.
