If you sing the tune it doesn’t mean you can never harmonise.
If you sing harmonies it doesn’t mean you can’t ever sing the tune.
If you sing the tune
it’s not that the tune is ‘right’
and harmonies are ‘wrong.’
If you sing a passing note it doesn’t matter,
because it resolves,
and what’s it got to do with anyone else anyway?
If you sing, it’s not a phase, it’s part of who you are,
even if you haven’t sung since you were seventeen.
If you sung harmonies, then stopped, sang the tune for the rest of your life,
it is part of what you are. It is part of your history. Why would you want to erase your own exploration?
Listen to the richness of the sound around you.
Listen to the richness of the people around you.
