Another aspect of the first dramatic lead role kinda snuck up on me in the days leading up to the opening. It just seems that whenever I set out to do something new theatrically or musically I can feel the hand of my guardian angel on my shoulder. I even make a point to visit Emily’s graveside at these times. And I have come to the realization that I KNOW she would be really proud of my accomplishments as I am, she would also be advising me to more. I still think that her voice was coming through as I told Beth that I “need to be BIGGER” although I know that the director was primarily addressing my fellow female actors. I was not joking. But all three kept insisting that I did not need to be bigger than I already was.
To that end, I am beginning a search for a vocal coach in this area. Not just ANY vocal coach. They need to be willing to PUSH me, be as demanding as I am on myself. I have to be able to trust that they will do that! Any ideas? I have been without a vocal coach for almost 3 years. A mentor I have and I am forever grateful for that. I just need someone to help develop my theatricality even more. Who knows to where it will end? Perhaps to get that first big musical lead in community theatre (my next goal) … maybe even BIGGER… AND THEN… BIGGER THAN THAT! And not because someone told me I should or should not but because I told me. Sounds like a challenge issued to myself. However far it takes me is my decision and as a sage once told me… “The Sky’s the Limit!” Not that I would hesitate to ask for any help would be great.

I only know of one vocal coach in the area, not really sure if she is what you are looking for or not – Lora.
Good luck in your quest!
And once you have succeeded in finding said vocal coach and worked at it for awhile, you will leave all your friends to pursue a career in New York… Don’t do it! 😛
And when I do… there is no way I wlll “EVER” leave totally. How could I? I have the world’s greatest support system right here.
