Funny thing about being a musician and not having time to practice. I have spent the last two weeks implementing new ideas for my teaching business. I am very excited to be able to more for my students than ever before. However, my practicing has taken a backseat to all of the other activities I am doing to implement the new ideas.
I think I have practiced a total of 2 hours over the past ten days.
Most people think that musicians spend a lot of time just playing music; well, not so much. As a performing musician, we would need to do a lot of promotion and planning of events and other logistics. As a teacher, we need to engage in all the same activities just with different types of customers with different needs.
Teaching and performing are often the part-time, fun jobs we do after the regular 9-5 of developing opportunities to play or teach.
