Whaddaya do when you’ve got a song to learn that’s keeping you awake nights? You write to the uber talented Suzie LeBlanc and ask her if there’s any chance she’ll be in the vicinity so you can study with her and you find out that she’ll be nearby in Lunenburg. Hallelujiah! We made an app’t for this morning. (A wee sampling of her gift: http://smcq.qc.ca/smcq/en/video/1392)
Yesterday, learning the venue had to change, lo and behold, for a reasonable fee David Findlay offered up his fabulous, wee studio in L’burg for the hour-and-a-bit we needed this morning. Very last minute. I recommend you get in touch with him should the need arise. (https://www.davidfindlaymusic.com/). Affable, even within the ungodly hour of 9am, there’s much to love about him and his place of business. He even offered to record the session, too, but it was 9:45am... Suzie was brilliant to work with, as I knew she would be. (Oh, her lucky students at McGill https://www.mcgill.ca/music/suzie-leblanc) Thank you to both she and David for helping me to expand my horizons as a vocalist. Hooray! Now, it’s practice, practice, practice, which I do in my car. That’s another story...
