Searching for recommendations  
I would like to try voice lessons, but despite Ruddigore I don't have a clear idea of what I need or what environment would work best for me. I like singing, but I hate being the timid voice that is usually off key in the back.

Does anyone have any recommendations about lessons and the price I could expect to pay?

I would recommend JDL, who music-directed MIT's previous Ruddigore in 1997, to absolutely anyone. He's the director for Vox Lucens (my Ren chamber choir), runs several other choral groups for churches and schools, and gives private lessons--mister_nick is among his current students. I believe he charges something like $40 for an hour lesson, which is at the low end of what you can expect to pay for lessons. E-mail me (greenlily at gmail) if you'd like more details and contact info.

Hmm. I think I will keep that in mind for when I (hopefully) get a new job.

My voice teacher, Cristi Catt, was recommended to me by 2 friends, and she's *terrific* at building voices in a healthy way--bringing out the sound without forcing, using support & resonance. I have made great strides with her. She's also $40/hour. The only drawback: she's on tour a great deal.
