Voice lesson at NYU
Hello everyone. It's Colin. Im sorry I haven’t blogged in a while, but I have had a lot going on in my life right now and I have not had a chance to blog. I realized that I had not posted this blog about an experience I had the last time I was in New York.
I did so many things while I was there, some of which I have talked about in previous posts. This experience that I will be telling you about today was a prospective voice lesson I had after a college visit to NYU. The professor with which I had the lesson was named Ryan Driscoll. When I first heard that name before I got on the plane to go to NY, I thought out was going to be some cranky old man who was going to impart his wisdom of music he had acquired over his 40 years of teaching. Instead I got this nice young man who was a real breath of fresh air. His teaching styles were new and inventive, and they made me go way out of my comfort zone, which usually I don't like doing. But this man made me do it, and I really liked it. Now you may be thinking, "What does this have to do with his project? Why is he boring me with this story about a guy at NYU that he thinks is really cool?" Well, I have an answer for you
While in the lesson I told Mr. Driscoll about my project (after we were done singing of course). He was extremely impressed and told me that I should put that front and center in my applications for colleges. Coming from him, that meant a lot to me. Since he was one of the vocal professors at a college I really want to attend, and he said that my project should be front and center, the rest of my day was amazing, even though I went and saw HAMILTON later that day, which made it even better.
Thats all for now, but stay tuned for news of more awesome experiences like my month-long trip to Italy, and another new song!!
Bye for now!
