Back to Basics

This passed weekend I treated myself to a mini-intensive voice workshop with David Smukler. It was a joy to be a student again and to surrender to the learning process. David is so ruthlessly perceptive that I feel my practice has deepened to a whole new level.

Tip of the Week: D Your T's!

The articulation tip for today (say that 10 times fast!) is to D your T's.
