I find myself saying…

“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.
