The first week is done, and we’re off and running on another adventure. Days are filled with Music History’s discussion of Bach, Secondary Music Methods talking about the history of music education, waving our arms in Advanced Choral Conducting, experiencing other cultures in World Music, learning about special needs children in Exceptionalities in the Classroom, and then there’s Environmental Science. Voice and double bass lessons as well as opera workshop, pops choir, concert band, jazz band, and jazz combo round out my music. My days finish out with about 3 hours of work in the set shop building the set for the upcoming college production of “The Brothers Karamazov” scheduled for the beginning of March. Phew. *Wipe sweat from brow* That was exhausting.
The officers of our chapter of PCMEA/MENC is meeting this week to gather ideas about trips for the semester and preparing for the PMEA conference in April.
Tomorrow is the kick-off for my weekly radio show at 8:00am. My two co-hosts, Josh and Nathan, are also music majors and we have a great time spending an hour on the airwaves playing music and talking about a variety of topics. If you are in the Grove City area, tune it to 91.1 FM between 8 and 9 Tuesday mornings.
I think that’s all for now. It’s time to get back to work on my Music History paper.
