Every once in a while someone will stumble upon the numerous articles, blog posts, YouTube videos I've made and find them to be interesting enough to reach out to me. I recently received this email and I feel that it's content could prove of some value to YOU, the reader!
...I'm sending you this email because I was really moved by your journey to becoming the best version of yourself and I was hoping I could ask you the following question: do you believe that 21 is too old to study opera?
...I want to sing. I HAVE to sing. But I wanted to know if studying classical music as a beginner at the age of 21 is totally and completely unheard of, if it was essentially impossible. Additionally, are there exercises that singers should avoid doing? I ask this because the Internet is rife with warnings about the dangers of strenuous, intense exercise for singers. But I want to sing, and I want to be fit, and I'm just not sure what to think.
You're probably tremendously busy as both a professional singer and fitness trainer, so I apologise for this wall of text, and understand if you don't find the time to read or respond to it. But if you did, any advice you have would be so, so appreciated and I would be so, so grateful."
"Hello ______,Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to me. I'm truly touched that my story meant enough to you for you to value my opinion.
