The Struggle is Real...

Last week our teens had finals, and having them “under foot” is always challenging.

Don’t get me wrong, I love being their Mom… but when I am focused on getting music work done, my patience is being tested in a big way.

I am almost done planning out 2019, and one of the big things that will be coming your way is getting ready to record the Christmas Album. Which I have named “Past Three O’Clock”.

So many things to prep and get ready for it.

So I went live on FB today and played a few improvs. I hope you get a chance and watch it and let me know what you think!

What do you do that helps you get out of the funk?

I can’t see the journey here, but I know I will make it to the other side….

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
