Keyboarding, Juries, and a Music Poll

I had my vocal juries today and my keyboarding final. The keyboarding final, I did alright on, but I'm that worried about it. I got a B for the class, but considering that I've got seven years of bad habits to get rid of and the amount of new material I'm learning, I'd say the grade just lets me know that I am being challenged by the course.

As far as juries, I am so thankful that I made it through. I'd been worrying about my voice for the last week and this morning, I didn't even know if I'd have a voice by the time juries came around. However, by the grace of God, I managed to pull it off. From the looks of it, I may have actually passed my level change and will be allowed to sing German, for which I'm very thankful. Not that I don't like Italian, it's just that I've already had a year and a half on it and I need to move on. Plus, Germans actually write music for bass voice, so I have a better chance of getting music that fits my voice. I'm very thankful for that.

Just to make things a little fun, here's a poll about singing:

Hurrah for German music! I have to say that I the songs in German. I like Italian too. Its the French songs that really annoy me in voice lessons.=-P
Glad your jurries went well! I can see why you would be worried about your voice, with all the colds going around.
