Like a fine wine…

Singers and teachers should be encouraged to experiment during the course of their work, and to savour sound for the sake of it; they must enjoy learning to ‘taste’ tone with their ears, like a discriminating winetaster who, rather than being bent on discovering his favourite red, learns to distinguish different qualities and characteristics in wines which are equally enticing.
