Back in the Saddle

Happy New Year!
I was away from my piano for 4 days, and it was weird to practice today. I rehearsed with a singer for Sunday worship, and transposed from D Major to Bb on the fly. Not too bad considering my absence. I hope that my skills don't deteriorate further as I'm not planning to play for my students' upcoming recitals.
My personal new year's resolution is to have more fun and enjoy the people and things that are right in front it me.
My professional resolution is to "work as hard as my students". This will allow me to ebb and flow with the ones who are busting their backsides to do their best work, and relax on the students who are not. Thank you, Ingrid Clarfield, for the relief I find in your quote to me.

2010-the year I work as hard as my students. Yeah, I like the ring of that.

  1. I love that quote from Ingrid Clarfield! It's been my motto for the last few years and allows me to have fun in every lesson and appreciate the student for who he is, not what I think he should be.
