While studying in the common room, I heard someone singing in the piano room. I knocked on the door and asked for permission to sit and listen to her practice. She was glad to have an audience. Her name's Aimee, and she's taking her master's in speech therapy after having completed a bachelor's degree in music.
She told me that the Faculty of Music sometimes asks for volunteers to take eight-week music classes from the students. She suggested getting in touch with Nancy McDonald about next year's batch. Sounds like fun!
After she left, I did some of the vocalizations Kuya Ed taught me before. My range is a little bit smoother now, and the high notes are a bit easier to reach. I sang a few things from Phantom of the Opera: Think of Me, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, All I Ask of You. I also practiced Sun and Moon, from Miss Saigon. All these were songs Kuya Ed picked for me before. =)
I should buy myself songbooks for some of the musicals I like, so that I can play them on the piano while singing. I'll probably never sing as beautifully as Aimee did, but it's still a lot of fun.
