Happy Harpy 2019!
I've spent the past week recovering from a very busy Fall 2018. I'm looking forward to a productive 2019! What are your New Year's Resolutions?
I'm resolving to make more music this year- writing, performing, recording... These are all goals I have. I hope to meet them in some way. As a harpist who is a mother with a day job (as an elementary music teacher) it can really be a challenge to move forward with musical projects. As my teen daughter is growing in her own musicianship, it's strengthening my own resolve to make progress. I have the bonus of having another in-house musical collaborator! I played a number of gigs with Eleanor last year, and it has been a joy to see her skills increase. I want to gig more with her in 2019, and possibly do some songwriting with her too.
So where to find the time to do all of these things? I'm going to try to block schedule my after-work hours. If I can carve out pockets of time each day, I can chip away at these tasks bit by bit.
I'll let you know how it progresses. I wish you luck with your resolutions too!
