(Intro Paragraph by Karen McKenzie)
Lessons In Breathing
Despite having grown up on the stage acting in various school plays and singing in choirs, it wasn't until a friend volunteered my services as lead singer to a band in our school, that I found myself faced with the prospect of singing solo. I went to a trusted teacher of mine to ask for advice. Could I sing in front of her? My heart was racing at the prospect of being told I couldn't sing at any minute, that every time I started, the words would catch in my throat and nothing would come out. I had to turn my back to her and try again. Only after she said that she had run out of time did I squeak out a couple of lines for her. Thus began the excruciating journey of auditions as a singer. Needless to say, once I sang Thin Lizzy's Sarah in front of the crowd a few weeks later, the bug had bitten but good.
