This week is nothing short of FULL as the wacky month of October is over… and frankly, none too soon! 🎃 👻 and yay for time changes and cooler temps and the holiday season. 🎄 More on alllllll that…👇🏻
Best laid plans…so I had every intention of doing the Rachel Hollis #last90days challenge. It’s really cool and I love her and so I prepped and planned and made my goal sheet and doing the 5 things a day and and and…
Well, friends, real life popped in and WOW, it was a doozy! October was a month of learning about my inner strength. And, faith. And missing things and cancelling things and rescheduling things all of which I CANNOT STAND. It gives me a stomach ache of epic proportions. I am not very flexible…so I guess the Universe needed me to work on that. And, when you are staring at your kidlet (spoiler for those who worry, he is currently laying on the couch with his Beats headphones cracking up over some silly video) who is hooked up to IVs and had CT scans and is so pale, you cancel everything and don’t leave or shower and barely breathe for 48 hours.
Our sweet son spent 2 days in the hospital with this crazy tonsil infection that completely spiraled and then literally the following weekend, he broke 3 toes. On a trampoline. 🤦♀️
This kid is seriously never sick, or hurt and THANK YOU LORD, we are soooooooo grateful. But we were THROWN for a loop. 😱
It has been so scary and enlightening. When someone you love more than the Stars and Moon (you get that, right?!) gets sick and is hurting, nothing in the world is right until they are better. Thank you, God, he is getting better! P.S. Both gifs chosen by our cutie.
🙏🏻 November is here and dear friends, online and in person, let’s finish this year strongly, positively, beautifully, lovingly and creatively. We can make a difference. Together. ❤️🦋🎵Conquer these last 60 days. Learn those songs, work those passages that are difficult, write out your lyrics and then write your story so the connection when you sing it is so strong, people will be drawn to you. If you are working on your piano skills, remember to GO SLOWLY. You know my mantra! Better to be slow and correct than fast and wrong!
I’ve started this month off rehearsing my female jazz vocal trio Dangerous Curves for upcoming gigs and our special announcement coming in December. 😉🎵 A perfect way to spend a Monday morning!
I’m 🎹 teaching 🎤all week and can’t wait to see all my kids and pros and speakers! You fill my heart with your amazing talents and dreams and I’m so happy to be on this journey with you! So many auditions and gigs and gorgeous songs to work on!! And, I took a class AND it’s my lesson week… you KNOW there’s gonna be some awesome learning in the studio!
This was a working weekend and I had a blast! 😆 Saturday, Den and I took a songwriting class with @louisegoffinmusic 🤩. O-M-G It fabulous! I’ve always wanted to try to write songs…goodness knows I’ve got some stories to share. 📝
Thank you @divamichellejohnson for all you do for our community of performers! 😘 You rock and I love you! Check out the video of her original song at The (Back) Space on her Facebook page. WOW!
Yesterday, one of my fave guitarists and I played a corporate event. We had a ball and even played around with some original stuff. Rick, you are the best!! You LITERALLY teach me so much every time I work with you! 💋😍 This is our 3rd time being asked back!! Thanks so much to my awesome DM from Florida! 💋I appreciate so very much the work you send my way!
All this to say that hey…no matter what life throws you…KEEP GOING! Even if I only get one of those things done on my list, it’s ok! Better than the alternative, right?! Anyway, here’s your…
Practice Tips! 🎵
So, I LOVE a good planning session, in fact, I love lists and planners… and making lists, lol! Nothing feels better than checking off a to do, amiright?! Make yourself a practice to do and put it ON YOUR CALENDAR. 👉🏻DAILY.👈🏻Here’s what I do! Wake up, let your body warm up naturally for 10 minutes no sound, then do inTune at 8am while you drink coffee. At 11am, it’s 15 minutes of dedicated vocal exercises with your fave youtube or app or one of our recordings (you record your lessons, yes?) and then your lesson with me is 12-1pm and so on! Ummmm that was like 3 tips, lol! 😂
You can contact me here for bookings. I’d love to play for your special event, cocktail party, cruise ship, restaurant or wherever you need beautiful music! If you need voice and/or piano lessons, head on over to my Facebook page for lessons and drop me a line there! In fact, let’s be online friends at Las Vegas Chicksinger . If you need any advice, help for all things social, this social butterfly 🦋 is glad to help!
