I’m still on the fence about this... I recently had a bad playing experience that has shaken me up. My ego is bruised, my confidence is low. So I’m going to try an experiment, I’m going to face my fear of letting imperfect playing out into the world. Who wants to hear this? Maybe no one, but anyone COULD hear it, and that’s scary. So here is some of my practice this morning, mistakes and all. #flute#flutelife#musicpractice#flutelyfe#1dayofpractice @bocalsoup
Day 394: Frustration at myself right now. Something is taking up my mental energy and attention that shouldn't be, and it led to my practice being just a bunch of half-hearted playing to songs, banging loudly, and fucking around. Felt too embarrassed to take a nice, artistic photo of my kit today.
Not every practice will be good, but my attention and effort was not existent and that's not good enough. I have to do some work on myself to resolve this.
Our Amazing Ari and her Spectacular, Brilliant Emilia who has brought out the passion for music we always knew our daughter would have. It’s wonderful what a gentle, intelligent, talented soul can do for a child musician and we couldn’t be more grateful or thrilled to have found someone to reignite the fire that made the kid beg us for three years everyday to let her play flute.
So completely artistically inspired every time I see them play together that it helps me with my own pursuits knowing how hard she works for this. Like my writing it doesn’t come easily to her.
There are some unbelievable music teachers living on the Northern Beaches, nothing like the ocean to boost creativity! #flute#music#musician#kidsplay#hardworkpaysoff#musicpractice#talent#inspiration#creative
