a: Musical audition ~
b: preparing for a 15-round prizefight

What: "Preparing for a musical audition is like preparing for a 15-round prizefight. It takes that much preparation. Don't pick up a song and run through it a couple of times, and then take it into an audition. You need to know that song backwards and forwards. Know the composer, the lyricist, the appropriate tempo (which may not be the traditional tempo - more on that later), the key you're singing in, and the show the song comes from. Know what you're doing with every word - this is not an improv."
