Rocking out in Prague
When Anna started taking singing lessons over a year ago, I remember her asking her teacher how we should practice at home. No one in either of our families, apart from Radek’s grandmother, can do more than carry a basic tune, so I was skeptical that we could help Anna practice. Anna’s teacher, a professional singer turned elementary school music teacher, reassured me that we’d be fine. All you need is heart, she told me. I can teach Anna the technical aspects of singing in class, but she needs to learn to feel the music.
