An Illuminated Voice by Karen Tucker Patterson
(A weekly beacon to shine the light on solving your vocal mysteries)
After 30 years of the ongoing study of voice and 18 years of teaching, I have been inspired to speak up and so I thought a BLOG was a good place to start.
Perhaps, like Renee Flemming and others, you were born with a “Golden Throat” and so your experience of singing has been more about gaining confidence and your teachers and coaches have spoken to you more about the music and its interpretation than about vocal technique. If so, then bless you for being one of the lucky one’s - go sing! This BLOG will most likely not be of interest to you.
However, if you, like me, have struggled through many challenges, in singing and in life, that have impacted your vocal journey for better or for worse, then this might be the ticket to help your own inquiries and inspiration. I will value your comments, suggestions and questions and will respond, where appropriate, either directly or in the body of a message. Wishing you all things brilliant and beautiful in your journey of song...
