I find myself saying…

November 8, 2016|Posted in: Uncategorized

“If I can just get to the next rehearsal, it’ll all be good.”

And it always is good.  I don’t need to get through rehearsal, I need to get to it.  I love rehearsing.  Playing with the entire orchestra, the whole section, a friend, my students.  That’s the best part!

But you guys!  There’s so much else to do to keep the ball rolling so that I can rehearse.

Deposit the checks

Email the parents

Pay the bills

Copy the music

Set up the chairs

Practice your cello

Find a concert venue

Update the website

Then there’s all of the housekeeping, because, well, I like to eat off of clean dishes and whatnot.


It’s not too much, but sometimes it’s a bit much.  And while it has been a bit much at times, it’s comforting to know that my sights are set on playing music with others.  That’s what I love to do.

And I’m happy to do the work, because this work makes me happy.
