April 25, 2012 at 6:39 PMToday we had a Career Fair at school. I went to two music-related stations throughout the day; one was about the arts, and someone from Quinlan & Fabish Music came and talked about his profession as playing tuba in band and working there. I also saw my guitar teacher there, which was a pleasant surprise, and he played some chords on his guitar and gave me some advice for my planned career as a composition writer: compose a piece daily, even if it's silly. I plan to take this advice to heart and compose something daily if something comes to me. Who knows; maybe I'll expand on one of these ideas and turn it into something big, I don't know.
I had a fun time at the Career Fair, and of course I came home and practiced violin. I did a quick video that's uploading currently. I have a piano lesson so I'll practice my pieces; my guitar lesson is on Saturday. Oh, and I'll sit down with an instrument and compose.
