I've been in some kind of music program or lessons as long as I can remember. I started memorizing music for shows when I was in elementary school and have had a show to memorize for at the very least twice a year ever since. You'd think by now I'd have it down right?! WRONG! I can learn music fast. I pick up rhythms, melodies and harmonies pretty quickly. But getting them in my head to be able to perform off book, especially with words attached, is such a pain. And no matter how much I work to get stuff memorized, if I take any significant amount of time off of continually working on it, I lose it completely. I feel like an idiot...

Memorization....the bane of my existence.
Taking a break from music memorization cause frankly my head is about to explode! Memorization truly is a nightmare for me and I really don't know why. I've tried several techniques and some are better than others but overall I think it comes down to me and my inept brain...blah.
