Marriage- done. All went well. Enough said.

Due to the Summer hols the teaching has dropped off a lot so more time for practicing and reflecting. Some encouraging singing in the last few weeks from very focused rehearsing. Things have really slotted into place on the voice front. Practice has become really effective and I now know exactly what I can get out of myself. A firm technique has FINALLY been established. Thank God. Consistency is prevailing.

Some hard core self promotion has gone on which has proved successful already. A concert with Kingston Chamber Orchestra for example. We are doing Barbers Knoxville:Summer of 1915 and Beethoven's Egmont. The Barber, at first glance, looked to be very difficult but I'm slowly getting to grips with it. I'm actually really enjoying learning it. The Beethoven will be fine. Definitely my bag.

I started a Turkish Course which I'm getting to grips with. The others in the class are very friendly.

Lots of new rep learning with a friend-Parry, Handel, Wolf amongst other things.

Things are on the up.
