No, really. I’ve never taken singing/voice lessons. It’s probably about time I start.
I want to begin auditioning for more musical theater. I honestly don’t want or need a leading role; I just want to take part in a production and be able to contribute my time and energy to the stage.
Of course, I am dancing again, so that’s performing to music. No singing, though. But that’s fine; it might happen eventually. I just have to get in touch with some voice coaches.
I KNOW I can carry a tune. Heck, I was in band for seven years and was even drum major for my high school marching band. So not that these are reason to be cast in a musical; I think I’m just saying these things (or typing them) to convince myself that I CAN do it.
I know I will.
So, while I look for a voice coach, I will continue to dance, start my workouts, and continue my healthy nutritional diets.
And while I am sometimes a drama queen, my life isn’t really a musical; but that doesn’t mean it will never be one.
I just know that one of these days–in the middle of a meeting at work, or at dance rehearsal, or while out to dinner with friends–I will be so overcome with emotion that I will simply have to burst out into song.
