Tuba-Less 2.3: Epilogue
Needless to say, things are very different from when I started this blog. The summer is over, I live in Boston, and I got a haircut. I got short on the cash (#studentlife) and had to take the site down for a bit. If you are reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along. With this being my first attempt at blogging, I am sure there are things I can do better in the future (not wait weeks to post...). That being said, I learned a lot from doing this and I hope some of y'all did too!
all of the things I tried this summer away from my tuba presented some sort of benefit, ultimately, I found I need my instrument to really maintain ability and progress in my playing. Go figure. However, those mental practices, all that listening, and the pondering of my own habits and ideas clarified a lot of things for me. By marrying those newly formed habits and ideas with consistent and fundamental practice, I know I can continue to grow past what I was once capable of.
The logic behind knowing myself as a player and teacher has made me feel more confident in knowing what I can and can't do, and how to get to where I want to go. The hard part now is deciding which avenue in this vast field I will decide to stroll down next! Thank you all again for reading, and stay tuned for what comes next- I am sure it'll be fun.
