I'm feeling a little bit nervous about my new high school gig--and I should! I think people would worry if I wasn't a little bit nervous, right?

And the expectations being laid on my shoulders are to make that program grow, to make it exciting for the clientele at the school. I have a lot to figure out once I get there--how much my current students know, what kind of music they can do, and how to entice my future students into being singers.

Yes. I. Can.
