James Schilling's insight:

This step is insanely difficult for me to do. I'm very tall and still not great at tap. I can do it sitting down and holding on to something, but cannot do the actual step. I've been practicing at home and at rehearsal and my long term goal is to keep working at it and add this step to my repertoire. Practicing it has increased my balance and made the intermediate steps a lot easier.

Jesus Christ Superstar Gethsemane Studio Version 1996 - YouTube

Steve Balsamo singing Gethsemane from the Jesus Christ Superstar Musical
James Schilling's insight:

This is a song that I love and have been meaning to learn, the high notes are pretty insane but occasionally I can hit and hold them for their entire length! My goal is to have this song under my belt and be able to render it like this.

While singing from the diaphragm is not something I struggle with, this video taught me a great deal about breath support and breath control, and I can apply it to my singing.

James Schilling's insight:

This was a step I was unfamiliar with and began working on. After practicing it around the house and with my tap shoes on I think it makes a worthy addition to my abilities as a tap dancer.

James Schilling's insight:

I've been doing these vocal warm ups every morning, and so far they seem to be working! My register hasn't increased but my high notes are becoming easier and easier, and it relaxes my voice. I've known lip trills are helpful but this expands way beyond that.

James Schilling's insight:

The quality is terrible, but this is a monologue (pretty much, there's a few interjections) from the drama Breaking Bad. I loved this episode and monologue and right after I watched it I knew I wanted to learn it. Now I've memorized almost all of it and have a worthwhile dramatic monologue for future auditions.

I was happy to see that this whole combination was well within my ability as a tap dancer. A lot of it was steps I had already learned (or variations of them) and I got to learn and add a new step to my repertoire, the shirley temple.
