And finally the audition is done. I've grown a lot and feel like I've started the next phase auditions, of having control and awareness in them, of having a method of preparation that leads to an accurate performance of my abilities. It's an exciting new step and I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from them, for my own sake and for those of my future students. There is a standard list of excerpts, and I'm starting to see them as my children. They are still young, but most of them are at least in adolescence now, and a few are turning into beautiful people. It's exciting to watch it happen, to be a part of it and to be outside of it. They will develop with me and without me. And during auditions it is the time when I become a parent and appreciate them and love them, with awareness but with as little judgment as possible. There will be more growth to come.
