SOME IMPORTANT ADVICE
This is all about you OWNING YOUR LEARNING. This music will be a challenge for ALL of us, and will help us to become better musicians. This is about the PROCESS. This is about you becoming a better singer than when you started. Your work over the next few months should produce something that YOU are proud of, not your peers, not me, not a judge, JUST YOU. What you put in, is what you will get out. Work hard, enjoy the process, and appreciate the opportunity to LEARN this music, SING TOGETHER, and GROW.
