Whew! I have been traveling so much, there has been no time for updating, sorry! This last week I was blessed to have been invited to present at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacadoches, TX. I gave a flute masterclass, a recital, two Music Strong workshops and a presentation on being a musician in the military. It was a wonderful trip and I had a great time. It’s always nice to be able to help musicians who are in the prime of their career, just learning how to practice efficiently and being able to give them the tools to prevent injury. If you were in any of my classes, I would love to hear your feedback and if you’d like a personalized program, we can make that happen too! 🙂 You can click here for more information on hiring me as your trainer, to write you a plan to keep you injury free, improve your endurance and extend your playing career.
Some pictures from this week!
A lot of you were asking about the books I suggested during the presentations. You can find all of these books in my Amazon store. The titles I highly recommend and used during my presentations are:
- The Permanent Pain Cure by Ming Chew, PT
- Release Your Pain by Brian Abelson
- Inside Out: The Ultimate Upper-Body Warm-Up by Bill Hartman and Mike Robertson
- What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body by Barbara Conable
The only book that is not available in Amazon is “Inside-Out“. This is my go-to warm-up book, and is available here in the Resources Tab, or you can click here. Inside-Out
This coming week I will be playing with Sinfonia Gulf Coast in Destin, Florida! We have a concert on Thursday night at 7:30 PM and I am immensely looking forward to this.
Sinfonia is one of a handful of American Orchestras awarded a special grant to perform “Identity” Zhongshan Zhuang,” featuring world renowned guzheng player Su Chang. Also on the concert is Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant orchestral showpiece “Scheherazade.”Cheng: Identity: Zhongshan ZhuangArtist: Su Chang (Guzheng)Ensemble: Sinfonia Gulf CoastConductor: Demetrius Fuller
