As I was driving to go pick up my kids from school one day this past week, I saw a crossing guard, for lack of a better word, practicing his job. He was crossing absolutely no one. There was no one around, just him and the sign in the middle of the crosswalk. It made me laugh out loud and later think that this professional crossing guard is working at bettering his craft.

As musicians, as people, we should always be practicing and improving ourselves to be better and stronger at our chosen craft. As we spend the next weeks preparing for festival, we will all need to practice a bit alone, so that when we rehearse together, we will be at our best.

Have a great week!
