NOT. ONE. DURNED. TIME.
But we don’t ever hear about those satyrs. People create what people consume. These podcasts and resources are not made, because they are not consumed.
What is the point of this post anyway? To rant? Complain? Illuminate? Maybe.
My hope is that it would be an invitation to consider the life of the voice teacher you are working with. That perhaps when your text doesn’t get answered for several hours, or over the weekend, it’s because your voice teacher has to clean out the closet and go to the grocery store or clean up the experiment called “we made mud pies”.
My hope is that it would be an invitation to consider the life you have if you’re a voice teacher. It’s okay for you to run upstairs and clean the master toilet before your 11 am student shows up. It’s okay to not answer that phone call from Student in the middle of the mall. And, if you are reading this, and not seeing how this relates to you ~ consider that too.
I see you, busy mom lady, and your voice studio admin needs being done over a breast pump or staring at a pile of pots in the sink.
And I see you, dad voice teachers, getting to go into your studio until “work is over” while someone else changes the laundry over.
What’s the call to action, here, Michelle? I don’t know yet. I had to process the thought first… it was on my list of to-dos. I’ll be back.
