Seattle Snowmageddon 2019.
Well, no teaching today as no one can get anywhere. So, what to do? I went through my normal morning practice routine: warm up and some technical work and then some sight reading. Then there was some work to do preparing for a Friday recording session. All this is pretty normal. What was different was having some extra time for an additional project.
I'm working on a new composition I've commissioned. "Pleiades" is being fed to me page by page, which gives me time to play through a section, devise some fingerings and then discuss the piece with the composer. A fun project!
Tomorrow looks like another opportunity for some good work....snow is still falling this evening, schools and many businesses are closing. My whole-house generator stands at the ready if a tree just can't bear the weight and takes out a power line.
