I recently attended a brilliant master class called “Rock The Audition” with Sheri Sanders, which focused on choosing and preparing rock and pop songs for the rock musicals – some say “juke box musicals”. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re here to stay and I want all of my students to be ready for anything. I’ve always made sure my students had plenty of pop songs in their books and we’ve been having a great time incorporating Sheri’s ideas into lessons. This was one of several courses I’ve taken since becoming a member of NYSTA – the New York Singing Teachers Association. Learning isn’t just for students… the best teachers know there’s always more to know!
