10 Ways to Improve Your Musicianship in 2010

I just read an excellent blog post by one Chris Foley. Read the full post here. Below are his suggestions for improving one's musicianship this year (or any year):

1. Define your goals
2. Stick to a regular practice schedule
3. Refine your practice process
4. Take it to the people
5. Go on a diet – of listening
6. Spend time on ear training
7. Get technical
8. Learn the theory
9. Learn the history
10. Learn to sight read

Becoming accomplished at an instrument ought to be a life-long journey. If you don't accomplish all your goals as soon as you'd like, don't despair! Give yourself ample time to grow and mature into musical understanding. Playing a musical instrument can provide joy for a lifetime.

November 3rd Pop Concert at Smalltown Space

The Pop Concert will be presented Sunday, 11/3 at Smalltown Space in Castro Valley. The venue is located at 22222 Redwood Rd. right next door to the Trader Joe's.

The maximum occupancy of the space is 50. Family and friends are welcome to attend this event, but we will need to limit the number to no more than 4 guests per performer.
If you want to bring any refreshments to share with the audience and performers, that is welcomed.  
The dress for this performance is casual - students can wear whatever they want. 
Here are the groups of performers:
Group 1 3pm start time Kaitlyn Y., Anna, Abby, Lillian, Kyle, Valerie, Samip, Sabal, Gideon, Daniel, Tony, Nancy, Tristan
Group 2 4:30pm start time Ella, Carter, Danica, Kait…
