Autumn Beginnings

With summer (and my unintentional hiatus) coming to a close, my life has suddenly gotten busy again. It should surprise no one that being in two community choirs creates a lot of work, particularly with the holiday season approaching. On top of two choirs, I am looking to start working again (Find my resume on the links page). Which is exciting and also terrifying! But the busyness is not going to keep me from writing. So here’s what’s in the works for the coming season:

  1. Mama’s Girl
    • Everyone who knows me well knows I’ve had a musical on the back burner for many years. I am (finally) planning to put pen to paper (text to computer screen?) and write the musical that has been playing in my head for about three years. I’m hopeful. But we will see how it goes.
  2. Choral Music
    • Lately, I’ve spent most of my creative energy writing choir music. That won’t stop. However, I am looking into ways to record actual singers instead of the MIDI realizations that my notation software generates. That’s a slow process, but it is in the works.
  3. Teaching
    • I am finally putting the steps into creating my own home studio for teaching piano and voice. Now I just have to find the students…

As you can see, things are moving forward for me. It’s amazing how often terror and excitement are intertwined. But more on that later.
