Coronavirus woes

July 30, 2020

 

 

We have all been affected by covid-19.  Especially musicians and others that count on a multitude of people to gather together and participate.  Among the musicians most affected are wind and brass musicians, for obvious reasons.  So, we've been delegated to our own private studios.

 

I have participated in many online discussions, masterclasses, etc.  The things that are always brought up are what's my daily routine and what am I studying.  I am sure some people are taking this time in their life to further hone their craft; practicing everyday for several hours, working on their deficiencies.  

 

Well, I have taken a different approach.  I don't know if it's the correct one or not, but that doesn't;t matter.  I have simply stepped aside from my practice routine and just played for the fun of it.  I have not started to work on anything new, I don't play any sort of routine, I simply play for the fun of it.  And guess what, I have maintained my chops and have loved every minute of time I play my horn.  In essence, I've returned to that simpler time of life, when we just played for the heck of it.  Like I said, I don't know if this was the correct path or not, but it was A path, and I have enjoyed it.

 

As things begin to return to normal, I will likely begin focusing my fundamentals to their proviso state, or perhaps even better (at least I hope so).  But for the time being, it sure is fun to play whatever you want, whenever you want, and for a long or as little as you want.  Regardless, I do need to say this covid-thing sucks big time!  I'll just leave it at that.
