Jan 2020


Alum Kelly Williams is taking three drop-in voice lessons with me to prep for a musical audition for ANNIE in February! Fun to reconnect after so many years!


Matt Murphy is continuing work on recording his album! I got to sit in on it again on Jan 20! Fun!

Happy 19th Birthday to alum
Alexa B! And Happy 17th Birthday to alum Ireland B!


Stephanie Morrison has been hired as the Music Minister of Lord of Life Lutheran Church In Austin. She not only has to plan and play all of the music for the services, she has to create and direct a choir. Way to go, Steph


At our Open House Dec 28, alum Will Mason explained how he went about recording the songs he’d just shared with us, plus all of the backup tracks. Amazing sound and harmonies!

Alum Nick Lormand and family came for dinner and we sang together for the first time after 6 years! He is a biologist /photographer, spending most of his time in South America, and now has a gallery showing here! Starting his doctorate soon!​​

Alum Tamalynn Opp gifted her future-NFL son Brady Opp with three drop-in lessons, as he is also a musician!​​


Personal Notes:

The all-day Fascinator workshop in January went exceptionally well, with gorgeous results from the participants!

Got to see the national tour of “An American in Paris” , and it was quite interesting. No one can duplicate Gene Kelly, of course, but the sets, the new back-story, and the overall dancing were really good. They also used a few Gershwin songs that I’d never heard before! (Imagine that!)

Cheers, Nance
