(Alex -- I'll edit if you're bothered by this in any way, though I cannot imagine why you would be)... I was browsing through the website of TM's own Alex from Atlanta, and stumbled upon the following: And you know what? She's right. And I find I always play my best when I treat it that way. And extension of my voice (my personality, really). When I lock onto a piece of music and grab the essence of it, what makes it speak to me, what makes me want to sing it, the sky is usually the limit. Anyway...nice site, Alex. And thanks for such ceaceless wisdom. (I especially loved the comments regarding embochure and breath...something I try to get across to my students, but you put it so well....).
