I have had a love hate relationship with every large musical ensemble I have been in since I've started college.
I always feel so busy and ensembles are always at the most awkward times on day. I don't like to go to the rehearsals at least prior to rehearsal I'm usually fine when I am there and if I am for some reason not in the ensemble i miss it.
But today orchestra was cancelled for the wind players. I couldn't be more happy.
But instead of being super productive like I had planned this afternoon after my practice i went over to starbucks and used a gift card i won at my cousins baby shower last month and have just been catching up with friends and finding new blogs to read. on my search I across this blog and loved her post on the A-Z of me and decided to do it myself so whoever reads this can know a little more about me:)

On a more productive note I have finished my atonal composition for my post tonal class. Well i got through it. It needs more work which is what I should be doing right now. I have to perform it on friday and I'm nervous about it, I have a feeling it might be too tonal. Maybe ill post a midi of it or post the performance.
I'll let you know.
Also I'm thinking about updating my blog maybe having a standard weekly project i post, maybe ill write a piece every week ( i need to compose more), or paint a picture (I want to learn to paint), or maybe post a video of me playing a piece and gradually show progress or maybe like post me performing a cover in some sort of cute creative video ( i play a mean ukulele). what do you think?
Alright work time.
