SJSU School of Music & Dance

Senior recital date is officially booked. I was already planning on it being that day and time, but seeing it actually printed on the event calendar makes it feel scary real. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen. Also, I’m not actually playing til 10, that’s a misprint. It’s only 7:30-8:30

This picture was taken on a lovely Sunday afternoon in august and just looking at it reminds me of the wonderful time I had while shooting. .

I am So thankful for all the opportunities I am getting. This season I am getting again many opportunities as a freelancer. This week I will be performing Bernstein and Gershwin. December will be all about the Nutcracker!!! I also got two new private students this school year and I am so thankful to get to know so many new people on instagram. For a while now I have been following and having contact with @kinderflutecanada and they are really so inspiring! Thanks to @kinderflutecanada I am working right now on a flute project and I am increasing my teaching tools! ... .

Congratulations to our amazing flute studio TA, Allison Asthana, on a poised and impressive DMA recital tonight. Every note (and there were many, especially with Jolivet and Amlin works on the program!) was carefully crafted and impactful. You inspire us all 🥰

Had a decent run through of the Largo from Tomasi’s Triptyque; a little frack but if that’s what happens, oh well! Just trying to make this movement as rich in tone and fluidity as possible!

I honesty don’t know why I chose the French Horn, but when I started playing in sixth grade, I fell in love with it! To me, Music is the way the Lord designed me to glorify Him, and I am able to feel His presence when I perform. Music is one of the most challenging but rewarding endeavors, and I am so grateful that the Lord allows me to use something I love so much as my vocation. I hope to be a testimony to the Lord as a professional Orchestral musician after graduate school.

Sorry you’re looking at the ceiling! I am playing a piece for voice, clarinet, and piano. Today I met with the pianist (no voice). It’s such a pretty piece and I’m excited to have it all put together! (the piece is by Schubert - Shepherd on the Rock) #musicmajor #clarinet #voice #soprano #schubert

How much do you practice your instrument per week? 🎵😁 How much do you practice your craft (music creation, theory, aural skills and other technical skills)? Do you measure your weekly progress? Do you plan your practice in a thoughtful, written out weekly strategy, or do you just go for it? Do you have practice scheduled in your daily calendar or do you pick up and play whenever it feels right?
We all have different musical goals, but I can say with certainty and experience that once I STRUCTURED my practice intentionally and could articulate each daily/weekly/monthly/annual goal, I started to see my progress move faster than it ever did before. Nobody really told me "how to practice" 🤔 and I worked with some of the best teachers around. I'm not inherently organized so I had to work super hard at this. 🤓

Oh by the way, did I mention I’m concertmaster for the Marshall University Symphony Orchestra?? I was so busy with music and schoolwork I completely forgot to update this page!!
.
.
I’m honestly still shocked that I of all people am concertmaster....... who would’ve thought I’d get this far?! It’s been such a rewarding experience and I couldn’t be more grateful for these opportunities that Marshall University has provided me. .
.
Tonight is our first rehearsal since our last concert… time to sight read new music and get back into the hang of things.

✨SIDE NECK STRETCH⁣✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have issues with upper body tension (which is probably about 99% of us) then you need this stretch! ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s no surprise that tight neck and shoulders are one of the most common physical complaints among musicians.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have issues with upper body tension then you need this stretch! ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As musicians we –⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥hold up instruments for hours at a time;⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥carry heavy bags packed with sheet music, textbooks, computers, mutes, instruments, and other equipment;⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥commute long distances for work and school; and⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥we’re too distracted with to-dos and deadlines to notice that we are wearing our shoulders for earrings for most of our day.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THIS stretch can help to counter all of that!⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s how to do it:⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Sit or stand comfortably with your shoulders resting down the back and your chest slightly lifted⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Adjust your chin so that it’s parallel to the floor (you may be jutting out or dropping your chin down)⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Let your ear fall toward your shoulder (reach through the crown of your head to keep the neck from compressing)⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Either keep your hands resting down or reach the opposite hand away from you ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Inhale and exhale slowly and mindfully ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To end, use your other hand to help bring your head back to center and repeat on the other side.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want more exercises and stretches for your upper body check out my blog post from last week (link in bio)! ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I see you. •••
I know you take that wrist cast/brace off for your performances. •••
The black blouse/shirt goes on, and the thing with the Velcro goes off.
•••
I know you don’t want to show the audience that you are struggling. It doesn’t match the aesthetic of the performing musician. And you don’t want the possible employers in the audience to find out, because they might not give you a job. •••
I hear you. I played through an injury too. I thought that there was something wrong with me. That because other people didn’t feel this way, I was broken. •••
And that way of thinking is complete BULLSHIT. •••
You are NOT broken. •••
You do not have an injury, you have particular habits that caused that injury. •••
If you address the habits, you can lose the wrist cast. •••
I believe you can. •••

Working on creating a habit of relaxing instead of tensing when I go for higher notes; that’s been a daily challenge! But my E is sounding clearer than ever before!! Now to hopefully extend to an F by the end of November!
High range should be practiced for a minimum amount of time each day to avoid injury or fatigue. If you feel as though you’re working too hard, step back, evaluate the situation, write down some things you noticed and come back to it the next day. High notes are impressive and fun, but they’re not the end-all-be-all!

Working on creating a habit of relaxing instead of tensing when I go for higher notes; that’s been a daily challenge! But my E is sounding clearer than ever before!! Now to hopefully extend to an F by the end of November! 
High range should be practiced for a minimum amount of time each day to avoid injury or fatigue.

TELL ME I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE...⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have a big project looming over your head like an audition, making a website, starting an ensemble, recording an album, and you feel like you have to clean your entire house before you can get started. Anyone else? 🙋‍♀️⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I'll start this as soon as I paint the entire inside of my house." "This has to wait until this happens." Or "I'll be able to concentrate better if I just get all of my laundry done." 🧺⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm guilty especially of that last one. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why do we do this? Why do we prolong the inevitable beginning of a big project? It's simple. You can SEE when the laundry is done, with the dishes are clean and put up, when your house has been painted. You can see the accomplishment and the finish line. Tasks are easy. They're fulfilling.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big projects, on the other hand, are scary. Maybe you don't know how to start. Maybe you can't see the outcome. Maybe you don't know if it will work. Big endeavors are risky. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT, once you begin big projects and see them succeed after lots of work and commitment, the satisfaction that is gained from seeing something YOU DID, something YOU BUILT, someone YOU HELPED outweighs the laundry a million times. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, if you've been putting off a big idea for a while because you're scared, here's your permission to get going. Once you make it to the other side, the reward will outweigh the initial fear and resistance.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, I'm off to do some laundry. 😉⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please share if you think others need a little push. 😘⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Austin, Texas

🌺 I‘ve been thinking a lot about what it is that I do recently. I do many things:
.
I’m a private flute teacher online and in-person. A lot of my online lessons are geared towards using self-awareness to elevate your playing and joy in those who have been playing for a while or are just returning after a break.
.
I’m employed by several schools near Austin as their private flute teacher, and I teach beginning sixth graders through graduating seniors, plus masterclasses.
.
I’m a team member of NR Media, owned by @nicolericcardo and I do graphic design and photography projects for musicians and music-related brands.
.
I have a print shop for my paintings (that is moving slowly with new additions.)
.
I have a blog and a YouTube channel where I put my efforts into providing helpful flute instruction that relates to my teaching and self-improvement style. (Which is also moving slowly.)
.
I have an Instagram account that I‘ve put a lot of time and effort for 5 years.
.
I practice my instrument and have playing-related goals.

This isn’t a post about being busy, because I’m not busy. I have plenty of time, and I waste it. I’m lacking focus.
.
I’m lucky that I get to do all these wonderful things I love, and I have tons of exciting ideas and goals for each!
.
But there are so many different things to focus on, I can’t execute my thoughts before the next thought pops into my mind. I like to dive fully into one project, but that means I’m ignoring everything else (which sometimes means emails or my administrative teaching things which are necessary.)
.
There are some dream projects and goals that have been on my to-do list for 5-10 years.
.
All these thoughts about what my career is have been on my mind as I’ve participated in entrepreneurship and career panels recently. It’s not about having time as much as it is about focus, clarity and execution. I can attest that without focus or priority, you might not do anything.
.
I also don’t see myself giving up extra things to focus on just one, because I enjoy the variety and I feel inspired when I’m doing a lot of different things.
.
My only concluding thought is to buy a planner. 😂🤦‍♀️

There are great pop songs two chords! And yes there are a bunch of ‘top 50’ song with 5-10 chords... But very little of todays popular music has as much music complexity as classical or jazz music. However, Complexity doesn’t equal better- since no genre is better than another. But the ‘pop’ more ‘simple’ one could say at least in terms of its musical make up... 🤔

Baylor University School of Music

I will have three private lessons this week.😯
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This afternoon I will be traveling a few hours to take a prospective DMA lesson with Professor Terri Sundberg at the University of North Texas. I definitely don't feel old enough to be looking at doctoral programs, but here we are!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This Saturday I will be taking a Body Mapping lesson with Jennifer Johnson, who will be at Baylor University teaching the six hour course "What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body." It'll nice to reconnect with people from @andover_educators and to continue to improve my body use and awareness while gaining teacher tools for my training process.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh, and of course I have my usual weekly lesson with my incredible professor @cdanielflute
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's the midpoint of the semester, so I'm sure everyone is busy! What big things do you have going on this week?

Some days, you just don’t play in tune 🤦🏽‍♀️😂 One of the many reasons why we practice! The words from Paul Katz, my old teacher at @necmusic still play in my head when I play Bach - try to eliminate all the “white noise” and fuzz between the notes to create the clearest, purest tones. Though it is a never ending goal for me, each time gets a tiny bit better! P.S. Today I was trying out the new camera. #JSBach #cellist #marzaoncello

Baby Marza!! 😭 This was many years ago at @necmusic, for the Beethoven seminar class. Studying this piece made me fall in love with chamber music, and its when I realized that I always wanted to be in a professional string quartet. - We worked with Roger Tapping weekly for a whole semester and also had coachings with other NEC faculty (it was my first time really working with Paul Katz, who would be my teacher for my graduate diploma!). I look back on this fondly, remembering how much fun I had. I also know exactly how I would play this opening solo differently 😂 I’ve had conversations with my quartet members from this concert about how “bad” we played and how we know exactly what could have been better - but hey, at least we had fun!! [also, our first violinist broke a string in the last movement 😂] #marzaoncello #cello #cellist #stringquartet #chambermusic
