Episode 009 | Betty Miller | A Senior’s Venture from Voice Student to Recording Artist

I interview 80 year old Betty Miller, a lifetime learner and musician. Betty decided to keep going in life when she was widowed at age 58. This is her musical journey of stepping out, doing new things and providing a legacy for her children through a recording. 

(4:36)— Betty’s first experience with piano lessons and practicing. 

(7:30)—She starts more education in her 50’s. 

(8:54)—Betty’s journey into voice lessons and private study. 

(12:17)—Posture and relaxation of your body has been a key takeaway for Betty in lessons. 

(13:04)—Betty delves into the world of becoming a recording artist. 

(14:20)—She shares what songs she picked for her CD and the reasons why. 

(16:57)—Betty explains a little of her studio experience. 

(19:40)—She talks about the other processes besides recording that happen with making a CD. 

(20:59)—A cd can be a unique gift to give because it is a recording of you. 

(30:11)—Betty’s final advice to people wanting to try something new: “Just do it!”

    Thank you so much for this episode with Betty Miller! I just turned 57 and have been a musician most of my life. I have been retired from public education for almost 3 years and pursuing this aspect of my life for the Lord. It was such an inspiration to hear Betty's story at 80. We need to hear more from those who have lived longer than us and to glean from their experience and wisdom! I so greatly appreciated this podcast! The inspiration is truly inspirational: ) Blessings, Scott
