Zap! Pow! Bam!

And another practicum bites the dust!

This time it was sight singing. I had taken sight singing last year, but I got very nervous, since it was my first practicum. Nervousness isn't good for the voice -- I choked, and that was it for that practicum. I signed up to re-take it this year, and I took it today, and whaddaya know? The piece in front of me was an easier piece, I was less nervous, I took more time to warm up, and I passed!

Academic plot coupon count, for those keeping score:

Language Exams: Passed 3 out of 3
Practica: Passed 3 out of 4
Comps: Passed 5 out of 5

Still ahead in the plot coupon department: one more practicum (probably transcription), and the Special Field Exam.

Thanks! It's not that I'm necessarily trying to gather all the "yay"s I can, but I like sharing progress with people.

We like hearing it :-)

It's good to know things are going well.

Go you! I think sight singing would be incredibly hard. Given all your singing experience, it probably wasn't the one that you feared the most, but it would have freaked me out.

Even for musicians, sight singing is harder than you think it is, and it's incredibly vulnerable to nerves, as I discovered last year. Fortunately, the ethnos only have to do four practicum exams, so I get to avoid the really scary ones like score reading and figured bass.

I swear, this is the part of grad school that's like some demented kid's game. Capture all the tokens, and move to the next level!
