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….

Oh Hello January 2019 and accomplishments in 2018


I just noticed that I have not written since October 2018. I think the end of the year was the busiest for me, and so I forgot to write!


I love writing it keeps me balanced and I wondered why I was so out of focus! Now I know why!

I am taking several classes to help me grow as a musician and business woman. I’ve been pretty good at organization, but as I move forward on my musical journey, I noticed that my organization skills are ok, but can be better!

I have subscribed to MasterClasses online. Check it out here:


I am taking a class from Hans Zimmer, then I will take a class on electronic music from DeadMau5. I am also taking The Online Musician, and Elite SFS classes from Leah McHenry.

Savvy Musician Academy

With the help from Leah’s courses, I planned out 2018, and was able to implement all of the things I learned from her.

I have not stopped learning, I plan on continuing to learn and grow in 2019.

Accomplishments from 2018:

  • I started learning Christmas music, and have arranged 5 songs ready - 7 more songs to go.

  • Weekly LIVE video

  • Weekly Newsletters

  • Updated my Website and Store

  • Received licensing permission to have Joseph Kind Joseph on the Christmas album

  • Surveys to ask what kind of merch you would like

  • Peace in Music created and for sale

  • Taking classes to improve work productivity and learning from current composers

Now that I have planned out a year under my belt, I know what I can plan out for 2019 and it will be improved upon. Next week I will unveil 2019 goals.

I want to thank you for joining me on this journey. I know with you by my side, 2019 will be an incredible year!


Peace in Music,
