Hello everyone, I haven't updated in a long time but I've been quite busy with music, a research and getting a cold. All of which are resolving as this coming week is spring break. I'm pretty excited because my symphony orchestra is going on tour during spring break. We have an 8 day tour in the Pacific Northwest. So, if you live in Boise, Spokane, Wenatchee, Ellensburg, Bothell, Mercer Island, Tocoma, feel free to look us up at It will a be a great tour we're playing Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1, Dvorak Symphony No. 8, and Die Meistersinger. Otherwise, have a spectacular week and I'll post when I return.

Hmmm...research papers really aren't all that fun to do. I'm in the middle of research for a paper which is due on Tuesday this coming week, what the heck am I doing on the internet!! Anyway, just a quick update. I'm have quite the load of violin repetoire at the moment. I have the Vieuxtemp Fantasia Appassionata, Bach g-minor Sonata, Wienawski Caprice and now my teacher wants me to learn in piece in 2 weeks and have it performance ready by then, so I'm doing the Romance from Wienawski's 2nd violin concerto for that. Oh, I'm also trying to learn the Bach double to play with a friend of mine, I haven't looked at if for over a week because I've been busy with Spanish and my other violin literature, like the Vieuxtemps which is much harder than I thought it was and I will probably be studying it over most of the summer as well. Anyway, I need to get going on my day, have a spectacular day!!

Good day everyone. I feel much better about music and the violin and music in general. I am no longer doing Music Education. I am going on the performance track. Here, I'm majoring in Music and quite possibly Spanish. I'll have a minor in Spanish at the least. My violin teacher actually thought my decision was a good one because she could see me working in the private sector for music. She had had a wonderful suggestion. She suggested I major in Spanish and do a semester in Mexico and see if I can study music at the music conservatory in Mexico City. I liked that idea and looked up the music school. Unfortunately, the website was entirely in Spanish and I'm no where near fluent in Spanish so I didn't quite understand the entire the website but I did understand a lot of it.
