West Ranch Choir
I am a student in:
E-mail Ms. Peters to schedule an audition.
Guitar and Music Theory Helpful online music theory links.
Miss Peters' favorite quotes:
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."
"Do or do not. There is no try."
"I think that at some point, singers can't help but to feel empowered because of all the sound they can make just with their own body...but at the end of the day, it's still about breathing with a supported scream."
"When you practice (music), it's like washing and cleaning and scrubbing....it's very hard work. And the more you work, you sometimes see how much more work you have to do. And that can be discouraging, so you try not to be discouraged....Rachmaninoff was very aware of his inadequacies, and said if he was ever able to make himself play the way he wanted to, he'd probably drop dead the next day."
Van Cliburn, world renowned pianist
