Hi lovelies! Welcome back to my weekly blog feature, My Week in Instagram. This past week was my first week of school as a Harp Performance Major at Chapman University! I still can’t believe that I am a student there and that this is all my real life. It’s so exciting! Nerve-wracking, but very exciting! I spent most of my time either on the train, driving, or hidden away in a classroom or practice room so I didn’t get as many pictures taken as I would have liked but meh, that’s what next week is for right? ;)
Train selfie! Who would have thought I'd actually have an opportunity to take the train after moving back to CA? Certainly not me! But hey, I'm not complaining one bit! I can use this hour to mark up my harp music instead of trying to avoid bad drivers on the road! 👍 #commuter #collegestudent #musicmajor #harpist #musician #ChapmanU @lifeatCU #metrolink #southerncalifornia
I just had my first rehearsal for Wind Symphony. This piece is fantastic but the beginning is frightening to me because I've never played anything with ryththm like this before. And go figure that I spent yesterday practicing a part in the middle because I didn't want to get discouraged and then I found out that we probably won't even be doing anything up to where I practiced for the first concert so I had to sight read all of this! And by sight read I of course meant hopelessly trying to count and follow the baton while trying to not mess up my part. I hope I get the hang of this fast because I am currently terrified 😨😨😨 #harp #harpist #musician #harpistproblems #windsymphony #johnmackey #thefrozencathedral #musicmajor #collegestudent
