Reflecting Before Break

It’s your last day of school before a well-deserved break.

I’m taking a few minutes to reflect, as I often do at mile-markers like this one.

  • What have we done well so far?
  • What will we want to refocus on when we get back to rehearsal?
  • What do I love about my job?
  • What would I change about my job?

Above all, I remind myself to be grateful that every day I get to influence young musicians and guide them towards making better music.

Have a wonderful winter break – you have earned it. Recharge, recenter, and relax.

(And a hefty sorry to those teachers who have two days of school next week…)
