Violin Goals 2019
Happy New Year!
I'm glad to get back into the swing of things now that I'm fully rested and ready to go. I reflected on 2018 and am incredibly grateful for the opportunities that came my way. 2019 will present its own challenges. Here are some things I'm thinking about for the new year:
1) Grow the Chicago Chamber Music Project
This year my colleagues and I gave our inaugural concert as an official group, the Chicago Chamber Music Project. This year I want to expand the project into a two-city tour. We're looking into making this a reality! Check out the project at www.chicagochambermusicproject.com
2) Exercising more and eating well
The past year I haven't had much energy to go to the gym. But I can't make that into an excuse. Everyone is busy. My goal is to get into the gym at least 3 times a week in addition to my violin schedule.
3) Growing the ETV Podcast
Podcasting has been an interesting medium that's allowed me to tap into the lives of everyday musicians doing amazing things. I have learned so much on how to get better at my communication skills with my audiences. My goal is to grow the ETV Podcast so that it's available for people who aren't musicians but are interested in the life of a musician.
4) Staying Focused
This year of all years will be an interesting year because of the amount of work that needs to be done. Staying focused on the bigger picture is my goal for 2019. I was at the end of ropes in 2019. My body was so exhausted from the year that I got sick and couldn't recover as quickly as before. Managing my time well will be important.
