Weekly Round-up 5/23/16

Performances: A wedding on June 4th, but otherwise things are looking slim in the performance category until July. Lots of other things going on, though!

Rehearsals: No rehearsals this week (nice to have a break).

Practicing: Working out my technique with straws/darts, and resonance. Making a list of music for my DMA study.

Listening: Mingo Fishtrap’s latest album, On Time. This is one of my favorites:

Teaching: Resonance. Let the air vibrate the embouchure. Let the horn react to the resulting resonance. Understand why it works the way it does (physics and design), but trust the process.

Studying: Grant preparation, doctoral recital repertoire, UMN entrance exams.

Relaxing: Art-A-Whirl was an exhausting blast this year. Apart from my gig with The Satellites at 612Brew, I walked several galleries with a friend and saw great art and music. It’s the best weekend to kick off a summer of all the things.
