Yes, I’m channeling Carly Simon as I write this blog post. The week ahead is full of things I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time, and frankly, all this anticipation is making me a little stir-crazy!
So in an attempt to ease the butterflies, I’m laying it all out here for you. FYI: blogging is a great form of therapy, even for us music therapists ;)
The launch of Music Therapy Pro. Check out the ol’ countdown clock in the left-hand sidebar…time is ticking down and the big moment is almost here. If you haven’t already gotten the full scoop, be sure to go check it out.
The end of my studio’s summer session. It’s been a great eight weeks of music therapy and lessons, but I can’t say I’m not looking forward to having some down time beginning a week from today.
My first gig with a full band. I’ve played lots of solo gigs, and recently teamed up with an amazing guitarist who I’ve been performing with regularly. But next Friday, I’ll be filling in for his band’s lead singer. I have some big shoes to fill!
There are a few other events on the horizon, including my three-year wedding anniversary (!) and a trip to Chicago, but I’m focusing on these big 3 in the coming days. Are you anticipating anything exciting as these summer days dwindle away?
Sounds like a serious week, Rachel! Really neat about the band. I find myself so distracted when I play with other people because I want to listen to them, and I forget what I’m supposed to be playing. Erg!
This is neither here nor there, but I absolutely LOVE the butterflies at the top of your post. They’re so wonderfully colorful and fluttery looking. Thanks for the visual happiness! :- )
Thanks so much Roia! And I love the butterflies, too :) It is a whole different experience, playing with an entire band…but yes, I totally know what you mean about getting distracted listening to the others!
