things ahead

There are lots of things going on this weekend, and next week. Things I’ve talked about here on the blog (it’s audition weekend!), and things I haven’t. They are things that are scary, and exciting all at the same time. They are things that need to change, and I’m ready to make the changes, and hopefully grow while moving forward. How’s that for being vague? 🙂

For awhile now I’ve asked myself what is the next step with my teaching? are things going well? Do I need to make changes? Is there something wrong with the way I teach? And because of insecurities I even ask if there is something wrong with me? Things for music, and the arts are pretty challenging these days in Atlanta. The 4 months of rumors about contract negotiations for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra have blown up in the media. The way people live in Atlanta has changed dramatically since I was a child, and the way people parent has changed. I’ve done a lot of soul searching this summer, a lot of praying, and working as hard as I can to make each student’s lesson the highest quality I can while keeping things light, and fun. I’m not really sure what’s going to happen over the next couple of weeks, but I’m excited by the potential.
