Even though I have never (and probably will never), sing solo in public, I am in fact a classically trained soprano.
That’s not to say I’m particularly good BTW, but I’m not outrageously bad either.
And yet back when I was first training for my exams as a teen, I hardly told a soul what I was doing, because if I did, they might actually ask me to sing for them.
And the fear of having my talent judged for something I did simply because I loved it, would totally and utterly ruin it for me.
And that’s just fine with me. Because quite frankly the world is none the poorer for missing out on my musical stylings, trust me.
