I went to an audition this morning.A crucial one.The audition for my minor. This minor thingy has been lingering around my thought for quite a while since we need to pre-register our course for the next sem.There are 3 minors offered by the faculty which is Literature(hmm common), Counselling(common too) and Music(Wow, that’s really something). I was having a hard time in choosing it. I rang my Mom and she suggested to take whether Couselling or Music(that was quite shocking!). I was thinking about majoring in music but rumors have it that we have to undergo a series of audition to be accepted. I called the Pengarah Program yesterday and make a ‘berani mati’ appointment with her.

So, there we were this morning in her office for the meeting.The sequences of the audition are as follow:

She was quite nice and explained everything thoroughly. I was intimidated by her giving information regarding the course.

This silly and wacky thought approached me all of a sudden. I kept picturing me with a guitar on my back going to classes.Cool.I always admire music’s students.They are all very captivating to look.But then, the dream shattered when she told us about the impromptu audition if we still very keen in it.I was deplorably surprised.She wanted to asses us at the moment without any preparation.She said that it’s just a simple audition about pitching, rhythm and perhaps the most shocking was the fact that we had to sing too. Chip went in.Then Nel’s turn.I was so deeply nervous(ah me, u know how I would react like).

I went in and she asked me to stand at the door. She played the keyboard and I have to identify the pitch and utter the sound.

“Laaaaaa…”. My voice cracked.I could feel that the glasses were all smashed into smithereens. I was so nervous. She pressed another key.The result was the same.She told me to stay calm.Then, the rhythm test.She clapped her hands repetitively and I followed.I passed with flying colours.She asked me to sing a song.Numb I felt.Took a very deep breathe, I sang ‘Your Guardian Angel’ by RJA.One verse completed, I stopped.She nodded.Then, miraculously she played the verse that I just sang.OMG.She’s so magnificent. Then, she repeated the pitching test.Some how I got the note.Flattered.She tried another note.Low note.Slightly different.Then she pressed the note that I just matched again.She sighed, pitching lari.End of the nerves-wrecking and adrenaline pumping audition.I failed.When to sit for Syntax 3rd test.

However, the best part is that I keep smiling upon reminiscing it.And still am.What a precious experience!.Hard to get!
