Hi Leslie! Thank you for the warm welcome its nice to meet you too! Yes of course I will post some videos :) I noticed the online musical project and I actually had a question about that. I was wondering if I can still post videos for Ages 1-3? I am currently in California half way through getting my AA study Journalism and Musical Theater at Fullerton College and I am loving my studies :) I have family that live in New York as well. My cousin Natalie MacInnis (who is the same age as me) is studying as a Dance Major at Pace University. My plans after getting my degree are to hopefully move out to New York. Along the way I am just studying as much as I can from all the sources I can get. I am very much looking forward to whatever new friends and opportunities I can get here at the Online Exchange :) see you online!

Leslie, thank you so much for your inspiring words. I am so grateful to you for letting me participate in this class! I learned so much about what it means to be a professional and holding myself to a higher standard. I will certainly be posting to the Seven Ages Project. Can't wait to hear your feedback!

Great idea! I hadn't thought about that, but yes, I am much more comfortable from the piano! I'll work on that! Thank you Leslie!

Hey Leslie! I recorded some songs with backtracks. Would love your feedback. And I auditioned for Oliver on Sunday

Hello! I've never been to NYC to see shows, but I think I will soon! That sounds really cool about Jane Lynch, I didn't know that! Thanks again!

So good to hear from you, Leslie! My violin teacher is one of the first violinists of ISO. And yes, I've been to many of its concerts and loved all of them. I'm very excited to join this group and explore my passion in musical theater!

Looking forward to participating in the project!

Thank you, Leslie! Of course I will keep updating stuff! Now I just need to find an accompanist and a song to post haha!

Hey Leslie! It was so great running into you too!! It went pretty well I think. They were an hour and a half behind, so though originally my callback was at 4, I didn't end up going in until around 5:30! I wish I could have stayed in the room longer, but they only had the space until 6 and still had to get through more people. I'm not sure if I got the part, but overall it was a good experience - Donna and Antoinette were incredible and so nice!! We'll have to wait and see what happens :)
