I have been bitten by the musical theatre bug....again.
Last week I attended two open calls, for Mary Poppins...again and Avenue Q. They went pretty well considering the long hiatus I have had from the auditioning scene. The biggest difference in the auditions last week compared to past auditions, is I had let go of a lot of fear. I haven't quite gotten over the nerves for musical theatre auditions, like I have for commercials and such.
Tomorrow I am attending another one. This time an open call for the Disney peops. Tonight I finally remembered and pulled out my book to do a quick run-through of my piece. Before opening my piano, I asked Big Sis if she could sing an A.
She sang a note....I then played the A on the piano and they matched.
I told her she could retreat to her bedroom as I just became a very jealous mom.
My "perfect pitch" is always a half step low. I know this now, so sometimes I can adjust it in my head before singing outloud, but I highly doubt at the age of 6 I could just sing an A on demand. Boy Howdy.
She then sang REFLECTION with me SEVERAL times...it was kind of a role reversal...she coached me through my practice, instead of the other way around.
