Well, of course, it helped that we are both sopranos! That said, she was good at paying attention to both my potential and my limits as a singer. She did an excellent job of teaching me to breathe properly which is far more necessary for a singer than I had ever imagined. So is posture. The more voice lessons I had with her, the more relaxed and confident I grew. And I had a lot of fun just being near her and listening to her sing something before I attempted to sing the same thing she had just sung. In her presence there was a beautiful balance between the hard work of singing and the joy and fun that singing brings to our souls and bodies.
