Not Crazy, Not Lazy

Not Crazy, Not Lazy by Elena Greco January 14, 2018 In 2011 I suddenly and unexpectedly found myself on the floor. I couldn’t get up. I had no idea why.

Let Them Be Children by Elena Greco October 4, 2017 I recently became aware that eight million children in this country, some as young as six months old, are being given psychotropic drugs—amphetamines, anti-psychotics, anti-depressants, anti-however-you-don’t want-your-child to-act.

Religion:  Who Needs It? by Elena Greco August 30, 2016 I’m going to have to say something once again that I know will not be very popular.  It’s about this religion thing. It’s not about being intolerant; I’m not. For me, it’s not about which religion is being practiced, either; they all have the same issues.  It’s about the wreaking of…

Communication: The Key to Getting Ahead in the Vocal Music World by Elena Greco March 22, 2016 Vocal technique, performance skills, summer programs, young artist programs, networking—all are important in furthering a vocal career.  But there is another important piece that is too often neglected—one that can make or break a career—and that is communication.

On Singing: My Philosophy of Teaching Voice

On Singing: My Philosophy of Teaching Voice by Elena Greco February 5, 2016 Being a singer poses demands that no other professional has to face. With an instrument that is both organic and sentient, there are unique challenges. Also, like acting, singing is a profession fraught with rejection. And in modern times, it is very much a business, and the…
