100th Post!

This marks my 100th post, so I thought I’d take a minute to reflect a bit on what it’s been like to maintain a blog.  All in all, I am extremely glad I started the blog back in June of this year, and while it hasn’t always been easy to post regularly, ideas for posts somehow keep popping into my head, inspired either by reading other blogs, through working out problems in my own playing, or through observing my students and colleagues.  I also keep a running list of possible topics, and frequently jot down ideas for posts as they come to me throughout the day. While this blog is primarily devoted to horn teaching and playing, I’ve been able to touch on a number of other topics, either directly or indirectly related to music. My writing has gotten better (I think) simply because of all the practice I get putting together daily posts.  I don’t always have time to post every day, so I try to double or triple up on days when I have some spare time. Little did I know back in June that this would be one of my busiest semesters ever, but so far things have worked out well enough so that I can post once a day five days a week.  I usually don’t post anything on weekends, if for no other reason than needing a brief respite from all things blog-related. The support and readership on this blog has been pleasantly surprising, and I sincerely thank all of my regular readers.  In an over-stimulated world full of things competing for your attention, I am truly grateful that you consider this blog worth reading.  I plan to keep writing, and I hope that you keep reading!
