I studied a minor in music in University, along with my mechanical engineering degree. As a student of the performing arts, I had the opportunity to sing all kinds of classical music in front of an audience. My first time on stage, I sang a baroque Italian piece and I spent so much time rehearsing the second half of the piece that (me being me) blanked out on it when it really mattered. Half-way through the piece I repeated the same melody as the first part but this time with complete nonsense for lyrics. With no Italians in the room, I got away with an applause and even a standing ovation. I think that might have been the day I realized I could scat sing.
