I do take enjoy playing lead guitar, but it’s definitely something I do because I like the results more than the process. With bass, I just straight up enjoy the heck out of playing it. Lead guitar is more of a musicianship thing to conquer/means of artistic expression, bass is more just plain fun. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I just don’t know what I want to study when i am in college.

I have been playing guitar longest.

I enjoy bass the most.

Flute is probably the best option because it is a classical instrument.

 

I also worry a lot about if i will be successful because i have never had a lesson in my life. everyone that i personally know that is a successful musician has had lessons. i will never get there tho.  

Also i had to kick the middle school jazz band’s drummer out 3 days before festival… He couldn’t even get thru a song without crying that his arm hurts. i am 90% sure i got one of my friends from the high school to take over though.

You have plenty of time to figure it out.

There are loads of successful self-taught musicians (including our very own boys!), and especially in this day and age of online tutoring and educational materials. You already know more about music theory and more instruments than many famous musicians I can think of! But if, when you get older and have more resources, you feel the need to take your playing/writing that extra step, you always can – it’s not like it’ll magically be too late once you turn x number.

If you saw this video:

The tuba player you see in this video is 18 years old. He’s super great right. Today (the day before jazz festival) he got arrested for child pornography. So now we don’t have a tuba for jazz festival. 

Due to this Mr. Hart texted me and asked me to leave the middle school two hours early just to do high school jazz band. Prior to asking me that I came up with an idea and said I could stay up all night and learn tuba’s part, play it on bass and quit my guitar part. Mr. Hart never texted me back to say if he wanted me on bass or guitar so I brought both: A les paul and jazz bass both in hard cases. Plus my 15lbs backpack. I am also 4’11….. so you can tell how bad my shoulders and ankles and hands hurt now.

Turns out we got a new tuba that used to sit in during rhythm’s sectionals that is covering the part and he’s really good so I think high school jazz is okay. 

Jazz fest is tomorrow. I’m ready. But is everybody else?

You also have to remember I am in the middle school jazz band too… and they don’t have it together at all. I feel like I am the only one there that knows what they are doing. Mr. Hart said he would pray for them tonight lol.

We went to jazz festival today and both the middle school and high school bands got superior ratings. After the middle school’s gig one of the judges came up to me and was amazed with my skill and he asked my band director “Where did you find her? She’s phenomenal!” Then he went on about how I’m so young and what not (like usual).

Here is some images from the day! I asked permission from everyone and they agreed I could post them here.

Warm up room with the middle school band

I’m crying. My dog sitter just quit on me. Poor Sacher Torte is not going to understand. We are going to see a possible new sitter tomorrow. This person charges more. Going to have to tighten our belts even more. 

My mother-in-law watched Sacher Torte from the time we got her until she passed away in October. Sacher Torte has just never been alone, and I don’t want to start leaving her alone now. I don’t think she’d understand.
