So I thought I would revitalize this blog seeing as it’s been a long time since I updated…and so much news to share!
Firstly, and sadly, I was not accepted to the MMus (Vocal Perf/Ped) at MUN for this semester, HOWEVER, I received some positive feedback and will be working extra hard and trying again next year. They all concurred that I showed a “great deal of potential”, that I had a “fine instrument” and “a secure lyric soprano”. All good things to hear. They just felt I needed to work on my style and technique before I would be ready for the MMus program given that it is only a two year program and two years is not long enough to correct all of my issues. I have an awesome voice teacher who I put all of my confidence in. I’m sure she’ll whip me in to shape before next March!
So with that being said, it’s not ALL bad. Rejecting me is the worst thing you can do to me because I’ll come back fighting like a pit bull! So look out MUN…I’ll be back…muahahaha…
I recently finished my teaching internship at the wonderful K-6 school – Mary Queen of Peace – here in St. John’s. It was a lot of work, a great experience and I definitely could see myself doing this for life. Just not right away. I’m finished accomplishing everything with regards to academia just yet.
The Fourth Annual “A Night For Them” is also keeping me busy. This year special guests the Riverside Chorale will join me and it’s going to be good! It takes place at Evangel Pentecostal Tebernacle – Grand Falls-Windsor – Wednesday, June 29th at 7:30 and tickets are just $10 at the door with ALL proceeds going to the MS Society of Canada. So if you’re in the Central NL region during that time be sure and come out…it’s going to be a good night! 🙂
As for the rest of my life, I am working at the store regularly again to pay the bills and fund my voice lessons. I am also hoping to take on 4 or 5 private piano/voice students this fall and taking trumpet lessons myself to challenge my Brass Methods course. In October, I will add degree #2 to my living room wall and hopefully #3 will follow soon after…and who knows…maybe a #4?
The sky’s the limit.
