This year, I start my quest to get my Ph.D. in Voice Pedagogy. I expect this to be a process that will take the next 6 - 8 years (or slightly longer).
The first steps involve picking up some undergrad music courses that I would have gotten if I had pursued a music degree out of high school. I'll be starting the Berklee online program for that in January. I'm very excited about this as Berklee approaches music from a modern perspective rather than a classical perspective. Being classically trained, I suspect this will be a fun challenge for me.
Meanwhile, I am also picking up some courses on Coursera. I just completed Learning How to Learn which was a great jump start to taking classes again. I actually recommend this to anyone who is in a learning environment. I'm now starting their Foundations of Teaching for Learning Series which is written for teachers. It's taught from a global perspective. This set of pages will serve as a place to store my coursework and essays.
