I have been learning new music. It’s a difficult part. I’ve had to work through it in sections. Sometimes the melodic line confuses me. Sometimes it’s the intonation that is fuzzy. Sometimes I cannot figure out the interpretation — or the dynamics, or the tempo. Getting all the parts to balance is very difficult. These koi! What a large chorus of voices!
I realize I’m mixing my metaphors. But this is a tough gig!
We are going to have to schedule more rehearsals, the koi and I.
Il faut refaire la même chose dix fois, cents fois. (You must redo the same thing ten times, a hundred times.) I keep telling them.
And them, they just sing louder!
