Now, I'm out on my own, a very small fish in an extremely big pond. Although I continue to receive teaching opportunities from the uni, it is unlikely that this will be something that will continue for ever. The idea of putting together applications for the few tenure track jobs that are available, in a highly competitive market is very daunting indeed.
So, in the mean time, I've decided to blog my adventures as a freelance conductor, teacher and accompanist. Currently I hold three part time conducting jobs, one at a church, one with a chamber choir, and one with a symphonic choir. All of which, I love dearly.
I'm not quite sure what form this blog is going to take perhaps it will include some of the following:
- trials and tribulations of concert preparation
- adventures in applying for a full-time job
- incidences from concerts, both funny and scary
- frustrations and revelations from life in front of the choir
