This past week I've been thinking quite a bit about musicianship and performing. As musicians we are always striving to be at our best and find new ways to improve our skills. The daily grind of practice, rehearsal, and constant critique can be exhausting at times but stepping back I realize how rewarding pursuing performing at a very high level and starting a career in music really is. I think it's also important to take time to enjoy what we do and congratulate ourselves from time to time. This past weekend the passing of Whitney Houston inspired me to watch a few of her videos. Seeing her performance of the Star Spangled Banner was a reminder of how moving and important a great performance can be. No matter what genre great music is great music! This post had nothing to do with brass but the blog seems to be a good outlet for ramblings, promise to get back on subject next time!
