A New Phase in My Musical Life.

October 26, 2012 18:20

Most musicians have had more than one teacher in there music "school" life. I just got a private teacher for the first time 8 months ago, and I find myself goin through the teacher process at hyper speed; not because I'm picky, but because I am a sponge and I have gotten as much as I can from my current teacher.

Well just today, I dropped her. A little background though; she taught at my high school for my freshman and sophomore year. When I found out she was leaving, I was absolutely heart broken. I was heart broken because me as her had formed this wonderful relationship; we are like best friends. I was heart also because she was my first private teacher and I wanted to keep her as my private teacher, which is what winded up happening. So I had all this summer and now we have reached today.

I love my teacher so much, and she is amazing at teaching orchestral songs, but solo wise I need someone else. Have you guys ever had that teacher that you were sad to leave, well she is mine. I'm glad though because we ended on good terms and she encouraged me to do what was because for me. I miss her already, but it's time for a new phase.

The musical world isn't always fun and music, sometimes it's high emotions because you have to leave a teacher, you didn't get into the orchestra you wanted, failed at an audition or maybe didn't get into a school etc. people my age, I hope they are ready for the dissappointmeant, hurt, and frustration that comes with being a musician. One thing of advice: what I do with all these emotions is put them into my music to make it better.
