Busy, busy

I finally had a whole day at home, which I spent alternating practice hours with laundry and my 15-minute jog/15-minute walk on the treadmill. I'm beginning to think that skiing is a pipe dream for this season, but am happy to be up to jogging.

The practicing was cramming for a chamber music weekend tomorrow and Sunday. In addition to the ambitious program I posted a couple of weeks ago, I squeezed in four extra rehearsals for this weekend, plus last week I attended a medical professional conference that was here in town, and this week I attended a music teacher continuing education meeting featuring Phyllis Young (Playing the String Game). I hope to have more to say about that later.

Just wanted to check in before I disappear again for a couple of days. It seems I either have time to live my life or to blog about it.

Ah, I see. Those who can, do; those who can't, blog instead...

Enjoy your chamber weekend.

Hmm. I lean toward the interpretation that that was a jibe about my up-time/down-time balance being a little out of kilter. You know what I meant, Mr. Consultant!

Busted! When it comes down to it, blogging does seem to be the first thing to get dropped off my schedule.

Been there, done that ... the laundry/practice alternating routine, that is.

Last year I read Phyllis Young's book, "Playing the String Game" and found many of her vivid descriptions of technique helpful for personal improvement. (not with teaching in mind) I'll be very interested in what else you have to say about your meeting with her.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend, with more music than blogging!
