Musical Monday-One Man Disney Movie

For today’s Musical Monday, I would like to share Nick Pitera as my featured artist.  Nick is SOOO talented and has an absolutely amazing range!  When you watch this video and find yourself wondering is that really him singing the high parts, yes it is!  His falsetto range is just incredible!  I think this video is so wonderfully creative!


So enjoy Nick Pitera’s One Man Disney Movie, featuring songs from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King, Little Mermaid, Enchanted, Hercules, Mulan, Jungle Book, and Pinnochio.

Words of Walt- Childlike Innocence

“I do not make films primarily for children.  I make them for the child in all of us, whether we be six or sixty.  Call the child innocence.  The worst of us is not without innocence, although buried deeply it might be.  In my work, I try to reach and speak to that innocence, showing it the fun and joy of living; showing it that laughter is healthy: showing it that the human species, although happily ridiculous at times, is still reaching for the stars.”

Musical Monday- Spell Block Tango

Okay, today’s Musical Monday is a Todrick Hall video.  It plays on the “Cell Block Tango” from the musical Chicago (one of my all time favorites).


Rather than the “6 Merry Murdresses of the Cook County Jail” this version features 6 Disney Villains (Cruella DeVille, Maleficent, Ursula, Scar, The Evil Queen, and the Queen of Hearts) as the 6 Merry Murdresses of the “Captain Hook County Jail.”

Disclaimer… I wouldn’t show this one to younger children.  Even though it awesome and Disney filled, it is dark, and has overt sexual references.

I think it’s such a wonderfully creative twist.  Enjoy this slightly dark Musical Monday.

Words of Walt- Do it Well


I know that when the Disney parks do something, they do it well.  That is what keeps me coming back time and time again.  I want everyone to experience the magic of Disney, and that’s why I talk about it so often!  I want to bring everyone a little Disney magic 🙂

Musical Monday- Disney Love Medley

Okay, most of you out in “Cyberland” do not know me personally, so let me tell you a little bit about myself.

First of all, I LOVE DISNEY (… like duh, I have a blog called Confessions of a Mouskaholic, so I guess that was a given…)  It might be more than loving Disney, in fact, some might call it obsession.

Next, I am a full time music teacher in Ohio.  I teach 7th through 12th grade choir and general music in a suburban school district.  I went to Kent State University (Go Golden Flashes!) for instrumental music education, but my certification is K-12 any music.  My dream was to be a band director, but here I am 10 years into my teaching career and I’ve taught choir for 7 of them and love it.  While that it something I never thought I’d say 15 years ago, here I stand teaching choir and really truly loving it.

Third, I am passionate about music, especially A Capella music.  I think that those who can sing A Capella and do it well are so so talented.  Just my opinion here, but A Capella musicians and groups are FAR more talented than those who can sing and dance to an auto-tuned track.  These groups display true talent and musicianship and don’t rely on gimmicks to sound amazing.  It’s raw talent.

Lastly, and this is important for today’s post in particular, I LOVE the group Pentatonix.  They are my favorite A Capella group.  They got their start on NBC’s show “The Sing Off” where they won season three.  They’ve become increasingly popular especially with their Christmas albums.  To me they’re fantastic all year round and I love seeing what they have done and where they’re going.  (I was fortunate enough to see them perform live in my home town in September 2015 and WOW what a great show!!!)

So without further ado, I would like to share today’s Musical Monday selection.   This is the Disney Love Medley, featuring Kirstin Maldonado (from Pentatonix) & Jeremy Michael Lewis as the lead singers and the group Voctave singing the BEAUTIFUL soaring harmony!  If you’re not convinced of how amazing this is (which you should be after about 5 seconds) wait for the last two chords… WOW is all I can say!

(P.S.- If you didn’t already think this was beautiful and adorable, Kirsten and Jeremy are dating!!! How cute!)

(P.S.S.- This is a completely separate group, but if you think they’re awesome be sure to check out the Voices of Liberty at the American Pavilion at Epcot.  Many of the members of Voctave are also in Voices of Liberty at Epcot!)

Fun Fact Friday- Super Bowl, “I’m Going to Disney World”

Congrats to the Denver Broncos on their Super Bowl win!

Confessions of a Mouskaholic

You’ve all heard it

Question- ” (insert name), you just won the Super Bowl, What are you going to do next?”

Answer- “I’m going to Disney World”

Ever wonder where that started???  The first football player to answer that question was Phil Simms in 1987.  Simms played for the New York Giants, and was the 1987 Super Bowl MVP.

For doing the commercial spot Simms was paid $50,000 and Disney foot the bill for his family and him to travel to their parks.

This year will be the 28th year, but who will be the MVP?  I guess we will have to wait until Sunday to find out!

Words of Walt-Mickey Mouse

“Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence.  He was a means to an end.  He popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad twenty years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.  Born of necessity, the little fellow literally freed us of immediate worry.  He provided the means for expanding our organization to its present dimensions and for extending the medium of cartoon animation toward new entertainment levels.  He spelled production liberation for us.”

Enjoy this video of Mickey through the years-
