Reading: n/a (Well, for fun I’m reading Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton, so…)
Arranging: n/a at the moment!
Practicing: I have a lesson with Kari Sundstrom, trombonist with the Minnesota Orchestra, in two weeks, to go over my doctoral audition materials and anything else we have time for! I’m also hard at work on the Trombone a Trois recital pieces and the two pieces I’ll be performing with my friend Gabe on her recital in St Louis this weekend.
Which reminds me: TOMORROW:
Rehearsing: TaT dress tonight. Metro Brass last night tried out some new members- it was awesome! It’s always sad to see folks go- but it’s also great to meet new players? The music world is bittersweet.
Thursday I’m out to St Louis to rehearse and perform with Gabe.
Performing: Trombone a Trois. See above. Gabe’s recital, see link above,
Listening: HAMILTON (yes, still)
Teaching: Following the phrase- what instructions are you giving yourself/the horn? They should be simple: “sound like this”. Relinquish control and it’ll be easier.
Relaxing: I went for a walk around Lake Harriet yesterday and saw a FOX! In the city! Amazing.
