A Thought on Music

... developing a second gift ...

By Len Dalton

It is fascinating to consider the many musicians who enjoy careers due to being in possession of the gift of music in combination with a second gift; a developed voice; dexterity or whatever.

In opera there are any number of careers among people who start with the gift of music and perseverance to develop what would otherwise be a non voice. The voice can be developed and/or strengthened to the point where, in combination with a natural gift of music the person involved can enjoy a life with music. In opera these are often "character' voices without which opera would be much poorer.
