Personal and Professional Goals 2020
It’s that time of year again where we’re all thinking about how to be better in the New Year. Looking back on 2019, I was able to accomplish most of my goals despite the obstacles life threw at me. It’s been a journey so far and I look forward to the following things in the year ahead:
1) Become a better teacher/performer
2019 was the ‘year of teaching’ for me. I’m grateful for the many teaching opportunities that came my way and hope to continue growing in these areas. In addition, I want to continue performing at a high level. It may sound simple, but I’ve noticed that it’s very easy to lose sight of your goal when you try to coordinate schedules with students while organizing concerts at the same time.
2) Continue growing the Everyday Musician Podcast
Starting the Everyday Musician Podcast has been a blessing in disguise. I wanted to do something different that will encourage music lovers to learn more about the amazing things musicians are doing in their communities. The goal is to grow the podcast to more listeners around the country and around the world. Listen to recent episodes of the Everyday Musician Podcast by clicking here.
3) Getting Out of My Comfort Zone
I admit, the last couple of months have been a struggle professionally. All the things that I wanted to do creatively did not see the light of day due to my teaching engagements. However, I am determined to continue into this musical path and complete my goals.
4) Create Music Products for students
I believe that there is possibility in everything we set out to do; that is if we have the proper guidance. One of my goals for 2020 is to create products for students that will help their violin ability and music business mindset at an affordable price. Stay tuned for that!
5) Record an Album
Recording an album in 2020 will be a big milestone. I am eager to get into the music studio to record music that I believe in for everyone to hear. I look forward to sharing that with you all!
