I would be really worried about the shade of green my right hand is turning IF I didn’t spend so much time with my hand in a bell...
Also, I am worried about the shade of green my hand is turning. This is a cry for help. 😂
This Monday morning transcribing requires two cups of coffee, side by side.
When I was in 6th grade I wrote a poem about how music made me feel, specifically how French Horn made me feel music. My middle school band director hung it up in the band room. .
I wonder which 3 notes from which method book made me fall head over heels with the most antiquated tube in the closet. .
Feeling thankful to everyone who consistently supports me in my attempt to bring this thing out of the dark ages.
I left a corporate restaurant job to pursue music on May 20,2016. .
I had the drive, the desire, the passion... I wanted to eat, sleep & breathe music more than anything. .
2 years later & I’m so proud of my 2016 self for taking the leap & diving in. I’ve had some wonderful musical experiences since I have been able to commit myself to my passion. .
10 months ago I added fitness into my daily routine & I started noticing how powerfully fitness was supporting my practice & performance on horn & voice. .
8 months ago I quit smoking.
After being miserably sick for a month or two - really crazy stuff started happening for my playing. .
In less than a year, these changes to my daily routine have helped me take huge steps with my instrument & my voice. .
Here’s a short list of benefits I’ve noted from my newly implemented healthier lifestyle in regards to playing & singing.
1. Playing with less tension in my face, hands, lower body
2. Stronger air support, breath control, and ease of breathing
3. More energy to spend time for practice & self improvement
4. Endurance in practice & performance is significant
5. Incredibly mentally present in practice & performance .
I’m so glad that I’ve made these changes to and for my body, my mind & my lifestyle. Fitness is powerful & has become a necessary part of my continued improvement. .
If you want an unconventional life you’ve got to train unconventionally.
