Finally~ April 16, 2023
This project started as many New York stories do-fortuitously-on the 57th St., crosstown bus. I sat next to a woman who was rummaging through her music. After I told her I was looking for a teacher, she told me about Ken Lundie, a vocal coach, who is also the rehearsal pianist for the Radio City Rockettes. I begin studying with this unforgettable guy until he died of AIDS in January 2018.
Without a teacher, I asked my childhood friend Kenny Besterman, if he would ask his son, Doug, the Tony Award composer, producer, and arranger, for a recommendation. This led me to the marvelous and unbelievably knowledgeable Jon Price.
Working with Jon, for now for 4 years , has given me the spark of confidence to learn more about my voice and musical timing and the courage to undertake this project.
