Support the Faculty of Purdue

Last year Purdue University, headed by the former governor Mitch Daniels, purchased Kaplan University, a for-profit university, for $1.  Having worked for a for-profit university, i.e. Grand Canyon University, the last thing such an institution cares about is education. It is a shame that such a prominent Big 10 institution, particularly in terms of engineering, is moving to a for-profit model. Please consider sending a message to Mitch Daniels that education is a for-profit business, but a for-enlightenment business.

Diction Police Interview

This summer while I was in Stockholm, I ran into an old friend who is the author of Diction Police.  She loved the paper my DMA student and I presented, and asked to interview us.  Here is an excerpt.

Britten, Physics and Phonics

While I was at the International Congress of Voice Teachers this past summer, I happened upon a seminar given by an old friend of mine, Dr. Kevin Hanrahan, who is Associate Professor of Voice at the Glenn Korff School of Music of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Matthew Clegg, a DMA voice student at the same university. The seminar was entitled Benjamin Britten: A Study in Vocal Acoustics, and focused on Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, and A Charm of Lullabies for mezzo-soprano, looking into how the composer set the text, to see if the singer simply sang exactly as the text (specifically the vowels) as composed whether it would match the dynamics and expression that Britten intended. It was so fascinating that I asked him to share some of their findings with us!

Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad is one of my families most favorite salads.  When I was growing up every Saturday was steak night with Caesar Salad.  Somewhere my parents found a recipe for the dressing, and my Dad would always make it with great pride.  After a while he began to experiment with the ingredient amounts, adding more garlic or lemon juice or the dreaded anchovies. (He and my brother Jim were the only ones who like the anchovies.  It must have something to do with their first name, Jim.)
