I sincerely sympathize with your daughter's predicament. Perhaps you should present this article to the heads of her theater department. I for one, would love to read it too. Can you post a link or tell me where I can access it?? My daughter is in middle school, has done some prof theater also and won a singing contest. She too, is a natural belter but is told she must develop an operatic/head voice also. Would like to know Julie's thoughts also, since she has mucho experience and knowledge.
