Today Yesterday I worked on:
Once Upon a Dream, from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
Oh goodness. It was so goodto finally get back to singing lessons. One of the worst things about not having a car was indeed not going to singing lessons. But more than that, I didn’t even get the chance to sing in the car (one of my guilty pleasures). And if I don’t sing at lessons, and I don’t sing in the car…I just don’t sing. In the car, no-one can hear your voice crack!
Of course, after not having the opportunity for someone to (figuratively) smack me on the wrist every time I make a goofy face while I’m singing (for almost two months!), I’m back to making goofy faces while I sing. :\ So that wasn’t as exciting. It’s good to have someone to tell me to Quit It when I do, though, which MP is good about.
So I worked on “Once Upon a Dream” from Sleeping Beauty today (not from Jekyll & Hyde, though I’ve worked on that one before, too – something about the intervals in that song give me hives when I try to sing it). She tried to get me to stay in character the entire time that I was singing and not look up at the ceiling the whole time.
We also chatted about my upcoming auditions and about the Royal Wedding (she’s very excited!). (About both, but she is British after all…) All in all, a good lesson!
