Vocalists:

I’m not the only one who feels that their voice teacher is, like, exclusively theirs, right?  Like, there are other students, but he/she is MY teacher.  Changing is a really difficult thing to do, IMHO.  I’ve been with Thomas Goodheart for 3 years.  He’s very good at what he does and he is well established in the city (NYC, for my out-of-state followers).  He lives in Binghamton, which is a few hours away and he teaches at SUNY Binghamton.  He is looking to move up in the hierarchy of SUNY Binghamton, so he had to leave LIU Post to concentrate his efforts with improving his resume.  I just auditioned two candidates to replace him on Monday.  Since there are classmates that follow me, I am not at liberty to discuss that any further.  Both gentlemen are very nice and are also very good at what they do.  Now, in my senior year, I have to change my voice teacher.  I feel a little ‘eh’ about it.  I guess this is just a new chapter in my career, but I still feel not too happy about it.  Has anyone experienced this before?
