As of March 1, I now have 6 months of lessons under my belt, and have retrieved my vibrato and hand, arm and intonation are getting pretty decent. My tastes exceed my skills however! ;-)
I come from a musical family, and also studied vocals with Ruth Terri Scott as a teen. My mom was a prominent amateur violinist in the Chicago area, and was a master student at the American Conservatory of Music under Scott Willits, and we became good friends with the Willits family.
I attended Indiana University for several years and though not a music major there, had a great time enjoying the music scene there.
