Elided Cadence

Dear Singer and Teacher Friends,

An “elided” cadence is when a piece of music sounds like its on its final chord, but then morphs from that chord in another direction within the same piece.

I’ve reached an “elided cadence” in maintaining this blog and am moving on. It has served as a vehicle for me to share, transition and grow since winter of 2009 and I am oh so grateful for your readership and this medium!

In the meantime, if you have a blog on on anything having to do with singing, performing, melding acting and singing, touring as a musician, singing voice rehabilitation, authentic music-making, pedagogy or mid-life and beyond transitions, please consider inviting me to write a guest post for your blog.

My first guest post is coming up very soon for Justin Petersen, so consider checking him out! In this post I explore a tidbit from historical and modern vocal pedagogy that just may be the single most important thing about singing freely.
