I'm sick with a cold and lost my voice...almost completely. One of my students kept staring at me as I was attempting to talk. He looked so confused and said "I didn't know your voice was going to change." He looked all serious. I don't know what he was thinking. I guess it weirded him out and he thought it was a permanent change (like puberty?). I don't know.
I had to explain to him and many other students (I see 500ish a week) that I am sick and that my voice is sick, but will be better soon...I hope.
It's been a fun two days trying to teach music with no voice...no singing ability at all, but I made it and it's the weekend!
