This past week has been productive in many ways and unproductive in other ways. I have hardly touched my violin aside from a Christmas concert I did out of town which was fun. That was the one with the Nutcracker that I never got music for. It was great to be a part of that event as I found out upon arrival that the conductor wanted to bring an orchestra to that community really badly and he paid for all the musicians and everything from his own pocket. It was fun and light-hearted and the audience seemed to love it.
Today I actually managed to get motivated to pick up my violin again. Sometimes you need a few days off when you don't really think you do and it felt great to play again. Things felt fresh and relaxed again even with all the upcoming stress of my exam. So that was a nice suprise to get a good bit of work done on some technique and etudes.
I cannot believe how fast this year has gone and I doubt next year will seem any slower with plans and things already booked up well into the year! I'm excited about what the year ahead is going to bring though! I have some new students starting and it will be fun to see how things develope for my other students who I have had since September. I'm excited about getting my exam out of the way and officially being able to tackle repertoire with my diploma exam in mind. There's so much to write about but it's unlikely you all have time to read about everything so I'll say;
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. I hope you have a wonderful season of celebration, friends and family no matter where you are and what you celebrate.
I totally love the headhunters especialLy sly and actual proof, wonderful groves that are alot of fun to improv over!
