Performances: Metro Brass 5/1/2016 Live at the Capri Theatre. Tickets are on sale now!
I’ve got upcoming masterclasses and performances with Mill City Five and The Satellites in May coming up quick!
Rehearsals: No rehearsals this week.
Practicing: Minnesota Orchestra opened up a substitute low brass audition! It’s April 25th and I’m hard at work preparing Valkyries, William Tell, Mahler 5, Bolero, Mozart, all the old chestnuts.
Listening: Phosphorescent Blues by The Punch Brothers came back up in my rotation this week. Such a gorgeous album.
Teaching: It’s been a light week for teaching as many of my students were on spring break. I’m hoping to take that rest into this week’s lessons and give some new energy to my talented students.
Studying: “SuperTeaching” by Eric Jensen. Feeling like I need to up my game for my lovely students. Trying to get my hands on a copy of Attention and Motor Skill Learning by Gabriele Wulf.
Relaxing: Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden, my favorite place in Minneapolis, opened on Friday! I rode my bike over today and enjoyed the sunshine.
