Audition Videos ... Done!

It's 11:44pm and I'm finally finishing up Penguin's audition videos for an honors recital.  This was a somewhat painful project.  I had to record her playing two pieces which we did on three different nights.  Recording is frustrating because we kept trying and trying for a perfect recording, which just ends up being frustrating for both of us.  I tried to keep recording sessions short because I found that her best recordings were usually the first few ... after that I think she gets tired ... I don't blame her!

After I recorded Penguin on a few occasions, I probably had about 50 videos to go through and I had to choose which video was best for each song.  I kept nodding off, getting up for breaks, etc but I think I found two winners ... well, I hope these videos make Penguin a winner. :)

We've never done something like this before & we have no idea what the competition is like, so I have no idea what to expect from the judges.  I think 3-4 judges review these videos and then some kids are invited for a live audition, so at this point, all we can do is wait ... and practice, practice, practice!  :)

So ... here is my Penguin after playing the harp for 6-months - probably about 6 months exactly.  I'm so proud of her and I can't wait to see where she's at after playing for another 6 months!!
