Happy Holidays

I hope to post again before the end of the year, but in the meantime, I hope you will all have a happy holiday season (and I'm sure many of you are finishing up auditions, Messiahs, etc.!!!) - a rest will be welcome!
The new year will bring new opportunities and challenges, but that's the great thing about turning the page - it's all in front of you!!

How is the audition season going?

Many of you are probably in the midst of auditioning, and I applaud your efforts.  As I recall my own efforts in this regard, I am reminded again how tough a constitution - physically, mentally, and emotionally - is required for successful auditioning.  And I should clarify, by successful, I mean how you met your goals for those auditions.  Since you have no control over how you are perceived or chosen, you cannot judge success by those exterior criteria.  Rather, judge yourself by how well you meet your personal checklist.
Of course, your goal is to get hired, accepted into a program, or to win a competition, but the first step toward meeting that goal, is to be successful in executing your game plan!
