Joy of Music"FUN-dations"
"An Expert! That's how I describe Ruth Goddard. Being an expert in my own field, I appreciate and respect the work and dedication it takes to be called an expert. I love to sing, but was very shy about my abilities. Through Ruth's vast knowledge of voice, and positive supporting style, I have gained much. I know I'm learning from an accomplished singer and musician. I now sing with confidence and know how to advise people who want to learn to sing, but are unsure how to go about it. With excitement and great expectation I refer all my choir members and soloists to Ruth's very capable hands. Any age, any skill level, "Joy of Music Co." has my endorsement."
"...thank you for your part in helping me experience more joy and freedom in using my voice."
"Thank you for all the direction, instruction & care you have given me as I have developed my piano, violin & voice skills. You have been an inspiration for me to continue developing my musical abilities and it is a joy to be taught by you."
For the first 49 years of my life, I was very uncomfortable and self-conscious in any situation where I had to sing with others. I knew I wasn't matching everyone else and couldn't figure out how to get there. My wife finally convinced me I could learn, so I went to the Joy of Music. I was surprised to discover my voice capable of quite a range of notes; and when I was taught to listen to what others were singing and match my notes to theirs, I found I could sing after all! A new world was opened for me after all those years...I can truly enjoy what others have known all along -- the Joy of Singing!
"I just needed someone to say that I can do it and that I have a nice voice. Wow, I truly believe I can do it and I'm not as afraid to sing. We had such a positive first session & I look forward to next week."
"I have been singing since I was a child, but whenever I think of Ruth, I think of her as the person who taught me to sing!"
"Thank you so much for everything. You have helped my voice grow so much over the years."
