For the faithful listeners of this show, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been on hiatus for a while.


I started Singing an Octave Higher with the mission to help as many people become great singers as possible. As a part of that mission, I want to share a brand new podcast with you that focuses on one of the most important aspects of being a great singer: Music appreciation.


So without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to Thank You Music, a collection of stories about a time when a song changed someone’s life. It was all inspired by one premise: picture a time when a song played a crucial role in your life.


This week, I’d like to share my interview with Laurie Winckel, another singing teacher whose entire life changed after hearing a Barbara Streisand song from the film Yentl.
