First Audition Coaching Session

Just came back from the first audition coaching session in New York. I hired my friend and UCLA alumn Brian Hobbs, who is a pianist, arranger, musical director and writer here. He was my music director/pianist for the first show I directed in college, "Assassins." It was fantastic to work with him for an hour on an upcoming audition song, and I feel so lucky to have him as a resource. I paid him for his time, of course, but he's only 20 blocks away! What could be better than that!?! I'm not a super-good musician and (although I have a good ear and memory for music) I always need a good pianist to play the accompaniment and catch me on any wrong notes I'm just learning.

Thus, my "thank you" to the Gods of Chaos: Yay! Brian is here!

Oh man he's gonna make bank off of me...
