Heart - Stairway to Heaven (Live at Kennedy Center Honors) [FULL VERSION] 09/07/2022
When you know the history, understand the lyrics,and relate them to your emotional self, then translate that using vocal techniques into a story, the essence and emotions will not only inspire your audience, but all of the musicians around you. This entire performance was inspired by the singer. It is a perfect example of a group of artists abandoning self and surrendering to the power and poetry of the song.

Just need to finish the lights!


Months and months have passed since we have worked together, and I miss you all so much! It has been a while since we communicated. COVID-19 has kept me immersed in keeping our family business afloat, and I am sure the virus has impacted your lives too.
Despite the development and distribution of a vaccine, it seems that it will be necessary for all of us to remain masked and socially distanced for the majority of 2021
Though I considered teaching online, I could not get my head around the process. However, after extensive research, I finally found a subscription program: Voice Recommended by NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) was a plus, and I have been painstakingly setting it up.
I will be sending you an invitation to access the site right after Christmas. Once you access the site, you will receive all the information needed to set up your end. Once that is done, please contact me to schedule a lesson, and we will begin a new singing adventure! The best part of this platform is that I can upload your music, warm you up with a keyboard, and adequately hear and see you! You will also be able to access the program with your cell phone. Note that there will be necessary setup costs such as a we**am and an excellent digital microphone. I have attached a file that will guide you on which mics work best with this platform. You can also log on to and watch the student online seminar for more information.
A New Lesson Process:
As previously, Voice and Breathing exercises will be your responsibility.
A voice lesson will include a warmup, work on a specific song or program, and analyze your technique that you should review and work into your next class.
I will not be charging you for your lessons. If you see a lesson charge on the site, please ignore it.
Hopefully, by working together, we will conquer online lessons and create great vocal presentations.
A Program:
Maria Perry, now a student at the University of Toronto, Canada, visited me last weekend. We had a wonderful conversation about her college experiences, online teaching and learning, projects, and frustrations. I mentioned how disappointed I was to cancel our concerts at Bravo Bistro and that any performance space would be out of the question for most of 2021. We both agreed that if the Octagon in my backyard… She laughed and said: “ Well, we could perform Les Misérables out there.”
Ladders, Ropes: A Barricade? ”?
I reviewed the program, and it hit me! Each singer is telling a story of “Innocence Lost” and “New Beginnings,” which, in essence, represent the emotional and social barricades that stand in front of all women! We film each vocal performance on the Octagon using the ladders and ropes to represent the barricade that hinders all women. We can all work together using our collective creativity. We can hire Danny B Films to video each segment and the finale’ and edit and create the music video for presentation on YouTube, FaceBook with a watch party, as well as other platforms.
Please note that this is just an idea begging for input. What do you think?
I write to you on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, and the night we will be able to view Christmas Star.
“He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.... In winter, the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. “
John Burroughs

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Wondrous New Year!

My Dear Students
I hope that you are all doing well, washing your hands, keeping your distance, and, now creating a colorful mask keeping you and your family and anyone you encounter safe.
I have done extensive research on creating a Voice Lesson online platform and have found that most require students to purchase a proper USB digital microphone.
The lowest-priced mic recommended is $200.00 and even that has its problems.
Though I firmly believe that one on one private lessons are the best and only way to teach voice, I have come up with the following free alternative:
You can use your phones to submit a video according to the following schedule:
1. Tuesdays: Submit a video of you performing your vocal exercises
2. Wednesdays: Submit a video of you performing one of the songs from your performance as it will be rescheduled.
3. Thursdays: Submit a video of you performing an uplifting song that we can share with others via Facebook and do our part to
“Create Sunshine for Our Friends and Neighbors”.
Submit to [email protected] - Add your name and title of your video in the subject line. Or you can submit it through our new app.
You have been sent an invite, but here is the link:
I will then view and critique your videos via email.
On Friday nights we will have a Zoom Meeting to discuss all the above…
I also have added “Chat” to our web site:
I feel that this is the best way to resume lessons currently.
I want you to all participate and know that we can continue lessons and continue working together preparing for great performances.

Subject: As per our policy, the Studio will close until Cumberland schools reopen.


First: I am looking into online voice lessons...Please let me know if you are interested. Interest is important because this is an extra expense for me and may require you to purchase a microphone.
This might be a good thing for the future also, for those of you who would like lessons while away at school. I am really impressed with Check it out.

Second: Not coming to your voice lesson in no way absolves you from practicing your music or performing your voice and breathing exercises

Your vocal concerts will be held and you must be prepared!

Third: Please review Lesson Alternatives, for some great ideas on supplementing your lessons, and feel free to share...see the link below.

The many paths of our lives are leading us to our reason for being here. We must cultivate a thirst for learning keeping our minds open as each and every path is a lesson. We must learn to follow our instincts and to allow the influences in our lives to work with our creative souls. Eventually, our life path will merge with our creative self and our purpose will be realized. Remember, that there is art in everything. We must look for it and embrace it. If we do this, we will be happy in our lives and our universe will be limitless.” Joanne Vecchio
