sounds of summer #tbt

27 Oct

It’s been 3 months since I played a show. 2 months since I played at an open mic. I’ve been reminded I need to get back to practicing and get back on the road.

practice magic every day.

7 Aug

Sometimes I find myself complaining about practicing. Practicing piano, practicing guitar, practicing singing, practicing writing. Then I remind myself I get to do this. It has always been my dream to be a musician. To be in a studio recording my first album, to sing my songs in front of a crowd, to be on the road. Practicing is part of what this dream entails.

I like to think music is magic. That my favourite musicians are all wizards that craft magical songs out of thin air. Magic. Then I remembered that even Harry Potter and all the greatest wizards practiced magic. That there’s a place called Hogwarts, where wizards study and practice magic. Magic is learned and practiced. And so goes with music. One must practice magic every day.
