It's going to be a doozy

This fall, my organ studio will be the largest it has ever been. Four undergrad majors, three grad majors, and one secondary. I'll be teaching the four new ones twice a week, a practice I adopted several years ago -- it just gets them going a little faster. But it's a killer for me.

Plus my favorite course on Liturgies, which, oddly enough, is not offered in our Philosophy & Religion department. But they're invited to come, even though we'll be singing in class from time to time.

Plus Monday evening accompanying duties for the Appalachian Chorale.

Plus four recitals (so far), one conference, one hymn festival, and a Halloween Monster Concert. All before Thanksgiving.

It's going to be a doozy of a semester. But I have not wavered from my practice of saying that I like it this way. I may not believe that as the semester wears on, but it will come back. I suppose I should stay home this summer and get ready for it all. Nah.
