This Saturday, there is District 3 Solo & Ensemble competition. Good luck to all who participate. I know that I've been working with a few folks. I plan on being in the room and listening to folks play for most/all of the day. If you are a little worried, and need a little help, feel free to send me a video or audio recording of you playing. If you get REALLY daring, you could FaceTime me.... maybe a good idea to text first to see if I'm available.
The NEXT day, please don't forget that Dr Waters has called rehearsal for this coming Sunday, 3-6 PM. I have shared all of my scores with her (and I have hers as well) so she'll be rehearsing my pieces, as I will not be there (I have a personal commitment).
During this time of year, it's easy to lose our focus, and be very hard on ourselves. Please exercise excellent mental & emotional health along with your own physical health. Depression is real, and it almost took one of more former students recently. Please know that I would never want anything bad to happen to any of you, and the world would not be as bright without you. It's easy to feel worthless because of smaller mistakes that we make. But we often lose sight of the positive things that we have done, and continue to do, and the positive FAR outweighs the negative. So let's get out there and do some great things, together!
