Hello, and Warm Greetings, from Chicagoland,

Warm Greetings, from Chicagoland,

I am a retired music teacher. I have taught, at all levels of education, from pre-kinder (in Mexico) to college (in Chicago). My vast experience has been at the high school and middle school levels. The emphasis, of my teaching experience has been in vocal training, theory, orchestration and choral performances. Part of my formal training, was studying composition, with Alexander Tcherepnin. (I know, if I mentioned Dr. Tcherepnin, I would be introducing, "the age factor.")

Since I have retired, I am an active member, of a large, performing choir. We mainly engage, in the classical repertory, however, on occasion gospel, jazz and folk music are included. Individually, I work and study, with a jazz vocal coach. Principles, of vocal technique, are similar, but interpretation is so different!! I gladly admit, I am a lover, of both forms.

My husband was the guitar student, many years ago. He studied classical guitar, while we lived in New England. However, his chosen professional path took away the hours required to perform, at the level he demanded of himself. He and I, both, had & have a long love affair, with the glorious sounds, made by the classical guitar.

Thank you, for the existence and the ability, for me to participle, in your forum. I look forward to learning so much more about you.

Be well,
play sweet

Welcome to the forum from Oak Park. You are a great addition to the forum. I was a musical theatre singer/actor for many years and several years ago transitioned to classical vocal study. So I sort of reversed your journey. Enjoy!
