So you want to be an opera singer?? Who would have thought that this would be the road that I'd choose. But then on second thought, I guess it is pretty obvious that I would be involved in music. I have been singing and playing piano my whole life and the more I started thinking about college majors, only one seemed to be the right choice. It's funny though, because people will see me and wonder if I am a rocket scientist or something because I was a nerd in school:) ( I love nerds!) But you actually need many of your wits when it comes to singing opera. Just tackling the language can be a task, but then don't even mention the artistic elements that must be incorporated. But...... I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
