There is enough of the idealist artist in me to hope that I am, in some way, making the world a better place through music, whatever that might mean. At the very least I hope that music can provide positive experiences and make life more enjoyable.
I hope to have more opportunities to concentrate on my own compositions in the future. I enjoy having a lot on my plate, but my life tends to get hectic at times when I am balancing several different projects and forget to take some time to relax. Recharging your batteries is after all of utmost importance when it comes to creative work.
I also often find myself thinking that it would be nice to complete that master’s thesis one of these days…
