Rehearsals: The Satellites! Tuesday night. So excited to get back together with these musicians.

Practicing: Singing, singing, singing.

Listening: Brand new Radiohead in the world.

Teaching: “Darts” and “Straws”. Darts for air and tone. Straws for higher register and airflow. “Blocks”- consistent air across longer notes- moving the air toward your goal.

Refining this concept, and thinking about how air activates the embouchure, and how little we have to do.

Studying: New things to start looking at: grant preparation, doctoral recital repertoire, UMN entrance exams.

Relaxing: Bikes, wildflowers, game nights, more wildflowers, playing Kubb in the park, sunshine.
