Why is it that I always psych myself out before any audition?
I hope I get over it soon.
Yesterday I registered for the Sweeney Todd audition, so no turning back without looking horrible. I was all ready to run through my song at home, when I couldn’t find the CD with the music for the song on it. Envision me, running around looking in every CD player I own. I even went out to the car. I thought it must be in my computer at work, even though there was absolutely no reason for it to be there. So I called my voice teacher to get a lesson before to audition so I could run through the song with music.
I should have just taken a breath.
In a few hours I figured out that I could look up the song on YouTube. I have done that tons of times before, me not having a piano at the moment. For those of you in the same situation, it really does work well because most recordings you can hear the accompaniment better than the voices 🙂
And then, as I got in my car this morning, I noticed the icon on my radio showing that there was a CD in there. It was in my car all along! I didn’t turn the car on all the way last night, so it must not have showed up.
It’s always something every time I have an audition to go to. Hopefully I can learn to not do this. I’m sure it drives those around me crazy as well!
