Here's the thing, I have way too much going on to sit a practice all day. I know, that's lame. I wish it was not that way. But I have a severe case of ADHD that has never been diagnosed and enough ambition to make ole Teddy Rosevelt say, "Maybe slow down a little, bud."

I feel like I need to consume something as part of my checklist. Maybe you've thought something like this before - I need to finish this movie because I started it. Just take a second with me and wallow in how pathetic that sounds, this is entertainment. You don't have to watch this thing! You don't have to finish your list of movies you've saved on Netflix. As simply as I can put it, you will not feel better when you watch all of that content. You will not be a better person. You gain nothing.
For your viewing pleasure!

Do you know how many people are named Emma? A lot... A lot. Still, they're all special (well, I assume there are some out there that probably suck.) Picking a good name for your group is important. But it is more important to choose a name you love and to move on to more important things... like writing and performing.

The first night of practice/trying is usually a major let down. It doesn't have to leave you wanting though! Read this for a few quick tips on getting the most out of a first practice/try out.
Let's face it, practicing scales sucks. It sucks real bad. It doesn't have to be this bad though! I have listed a few of the fun ways I like to practice my scales.
I know you want it! But is that enough? Obviously not! You need to do the little things EVERY DAY!
