String Area Blog #2: So far, so good

Thanks to those who sent comments on the first post – much appreciated!

As you might imagine, the first few weeks of a new school year can be quite overwhelming. As I mentioned last time, how we manage our time is critical to our success as musicians. For me, that means having my planner handy at all times, but remembering that I need to be flexible. As the saying goes: “Life happens when you are busy making other plans.” Right now that means getting the viola studio settled and in a practice routine, figuring out repertoire for recitals and juries, and having a sectional for the first orchestra concert on Sept. 24 and 25. Oh, yes, and practicing for my recital on Sept. 28. Come if you can, it will be a wonderful evening of music for solo viola, and viola and piano with my colleague Dr. Tim Burns (pictured).

Until next time…Margaret Miller
