Day 31

It’d now been a full month of my project.  Only 11 to go!  I’ve managed to do something performance related every day, whether it’s a rehearsal, true performance, teaching, or whatever.  So far, taking the mentality of “performing” into every situation has helped me develop as a player.

I haven’t composed in a while.  I wonder if this is considered performing, except very slowly.  I suppose every composition is conceived to be performed, and is run through in the composer’s head.  This seems to me to be the biggest difference between a performance and a creation of music.  I’m really glad, as an improviser, to be able to do both simultaneously sometimes.

Tonight I’m performing with the RSO.  Should be fun!
