Where has September gone?? It's nearly October. Time slips away so quickly.
I've been doing a lot of reflecting on life lately. There's been many changes and eye-opening experiences in a short span of time. I guess I'll just get straight to the point: music is my true passion; I've never wanted to excel in something as much as I do in it. The downside? It gets overwhelming. I know I'm nowhere near as advanced as the talented musicians I share classes with, and I am constantly pushing myself just to stay on what I feel is the same level as them. Though I absolutely love learning all about theory and whatnot, it begins to wear on me. It's worn on me to the point where I've been doubting my ability/decisions. I am my own worst critic: I know I'm not awful, but I know I'm far from anything spectacular. When I was feeling my most hopeless, Dr. Bassett (my voice teacher) somehow knew exactly what I needed to hear. Without going into too much detail, I can tell you that he revitalized me spirits. He shocked me with his words, dusted me off and stood me back up on my feet again... then [gently] shoved me in the direction I know I want to continue in. I can't express how much I already appreciate him and the vast amount of knowledge he's imparting.
