To Quote Dame Julie Andrews

I recently read Julie Andrews’ autobiography, Home– A Memoir of My Early Years and  came across this intriguing practice tip!

“My coach, Madame Stiles-Allen had taught me how to work on a problematic note in a song by strengthening the note before it.  I was amazed and humbled to discover that this technique can be applied to many aspects of theater:  drama, comedy, song, or dance.  It seems to me that if a moment in one’s performance feels lost, it pays to take a look at the moment before it–to help set up and strengthen the troubling area.”

Am looking forward to putting this concept into practice.
