Did you ever take whistling lessons?

February 23, 2017

No, I am primarily a self-taught whistler, but singing in choirs for 15 years taught me how to make music. Whether you play the oboe, flute, guitar, sing, or whistle, there are many common elements to making good music. Phrasing, attention to detail, arranging, and intonation are among the factors that separate music from noise. I have Betty Buchanan, former music director of the Capitol Hill Choral Society with whom I sung for ten years, for helping me become the musician I am today.
