All in a day’s work

Who said gigging would slow down for me once I started spending more time in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio? Even when I’m not traveling, it can get pretty busy.

On this long day of gigging I started with a pair of rock and roll church services at the Heritage Church, followed by an hour of solo playing at an artsy event held at the local Cafe Brioso, followed by a rehearsal and performance as soloist with the Westerville Symphony Orchestra. (Still get to pull out those classical chops every once in a while and it’s so much fun when I do since I hardly ever have to…) Westerville had me playing Vivaldi “Winter” and Piazolla “Winter”. I got the call five days before the gig to sub for my friend Erin Gillilland, who had a last minute injury to her arm. (Thanks for the call, Erin! )

The (not so?) funny insults I receive about my violin playing

If you’re tired of fighting with your inner critic, know this:
It’s common for musicians of all ages and abilities to feel anxious and//or have self-doubting thoughts.
I and many of my adult students and colleagues struggle with insecurities. If this applies to you, you’re far from alone.
