New Year: New Goals
Another new year! I can honestly say I don’t know where the last one went! A whirlwind of jam making, toddler wrangling and teaching. 2018 was a great teaching year – the Improvisation Course was great fun and there’s more workshops scheduled for later in the year, but the first one will be on the 26th January.
Despite the cold, damp and dark nights I do like the start of a new year. Although like most I often fail to complete everything on my goals for the year list, but I do like having a good list and being able to cross items off. I find it gives me more focus and helps my creativity.
So the focus for this year is:
1. Grade 8 Piano: Although I’ve been saying this since 2005 and always avoid it due to the scales and early pieces option, I’m going to aim for the VCM Contemporary Piano Syllabus!
2. Grade 3 Cello: Time to dust the cello off again and get back into the string world
3. Practise Sax: It’s time to get sax serious again and start working towards my performance diploma
4. Teaching Diploma: Probably not something to complete this year but I could certainly get the essay written.
What’s your goals for this year?
