#beginquote# To the anonymous poster of this thread: First off, I think that you want help but maybe not the kind of help that was being offered. You need to be as specific as possible when you post a question, so that anyone reading it may offer you the best suggestions. Ultimately you will have to choose what you do with the advice that you are given. Pete's suggestion is the most valid one in so far as having a teacher observe, critique, and instruct you is the best way that someone who is at the beginning stages of musical development can accomplish his or her goal of becoming better. Practice is a key element as someone else had mentioned, but if you practice something that you have learned incorrectly, you will have a difficult time unlearning the mistakes and fixing the problems in the future. As to the way that Pete reacted to your obvious frustration, if we are all here to learn and or help, then to put someone down because of what they say or how they react especially since they may not know you personally is inappropriate at best. You, as a musician should have enough self esteem, and confidence in yourself and what you offer that someone who acts inappropriately will not cause you to do the same. In short, remember that we are all in this together for a reason. MUSIC. We love it or want to love it. Otherwise, if we allow our emotions to govern, then our intelligence is wasted and any advice that you wish to give may not be taken as it is meant to be given. If any of what I have written offends you please believe that is not my intention. I am here because I also want to learn and to help, having been a classically trained singer for over 13 years, a former music teacher, choral conductor, and someone who is physically keyboard challenged, I know that we all need help in some form or another. I hope that if I ever ask for or offer suggestions that I will not be made to feel foolish, or be misinterpreted by anyone on this forum. "Be Not Afraid" JPII #endquote#
