It's SUMMER 2018!

Summer is my favorite time of the year -- a time to do something different.
I used to sail and swim, now a good book on the back deck, surveying the weedy garden is heaven!
Musically I look also for a different focus to practice and music.  Practice, YES, just differently.
Many have summer "gigs" and summer camps -- different venue, different colleagues, different surroundings,  refreshes the soul, enjoyable -- for students, teachers, and professionals!
Students -- You have worked hard.  You may enjoy something new and different, not just more pages of the same book., a different focus to your practice.  Suggestions:
Maybe something easy and beautiful, just maintain and remember what you learned this year.
Is this the time to really gain some finger technic -- scales and basic patterns with facility.
A summer to work on orchestral material, excerpts, and to listen also!
Choose a Concerto for next year's Competition, or recital -- sample several to provide a choice.
Or just some easier melodic etudes, a couple of new ones every couple of weeks to just keep the chops and the fingers in place so you have not lost ground when you begin Fall. Ask for suggestions!
Gather some friends for a Chamber Ensemble -- duets, trios, etc.  Again, ask for suggestions!

What ever you do try to not let more that two days go by with out playing something.
