"Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart."
I read somewhere this beautiful thought and would like to share it with you:
'There are some very gifted people out there, people who have more natural talent than others! Even though natural talent still counts, talent is much more than a natural aptitude.

Singing is about performing. When we take singing lessons it is easy to forget that. We think about breathing and legato and other aspects of a singing technique, but the only reason to learn a singing technique is so that when you are performing it is there and you don't have to think about...
As a vocal professional, vocal technique is the most important tool to utilise in order to create, maintain and prolong one's career. Good technique can rescue you in times of need, and bad technique can ruin you before you have even started.
