Hangin' In A Jury... Good Times.

Today I had my first jury. As a music major, we are required to do these "juries" where you go in front of your instructor and a few members of the music dept. faculty and play a prepared piece or two and some other little things (scales etc.) and the faculty members comment on you. Overall, I would have to say that I did ok... considering I didn't show up when I was supposed to (stupid attack). I know I could have prepared a little better and so on... but overall, I'm glad that it's over with until next semester. Now I just have a jazz band audition. I'm actually a little more worried about this than I was for my jury. Mainly because for the audition material I get handed Charlie Parker's exact transcription of Confirmation.... Jazzers know what I'm talking about. I’ve been listening to that and fingering along to the music... I'm also half way done with all of my finals and not feeling too bad, I only have Speech, Music Theory, and Biology left. After that, I'm officially done with my first semester of college, and officially lots of money in debt. Hooray.
