This is one of the best parts of my job; pairing up donated gear with students. Aiden very recently started playing bass. She’s already a very talented cellist. However she came to the realization that playing bass will better serve her musical goals. And better yet....she wants to be a doubler so she can be versatile. So she’s gearing up for both electric and upright bass studies.

Aiden has a very supportive family. Her older sister (another former student of mine and one of Aiden’s mentors on cello) donated her own cello to Aiden’s cause. That allowed the parents to put the rental money for Aiden’s cello towards an upright bass. Now Aiden can continue on cello while learning double bass.

The universe then further supported her decision...these two speakers became available a few days after she made her decision known. One of my adult students donated these speakers so they could passed on to a younger player. He did that in the spirit of “paying it forward” for all the folks who supported him as he was coming up. Perfect timing.

Here’s a first today. I was tapped for a gig to play bass...and then was asked...”Can you bring your Tibetan bowls as well?” #daymade 🙂

A friendly reminder to keep checking the humidity in any areas where you store your string instruments as we transition to winter. A 10 percent rapid change in humidity one way or another can be trouble. This upright bass had an older repair fail due to rapid humidity changes these last few weeks.

It’s great to see former students doing well for themselves IN music! Stephen had a composition performed by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. He studied guitar and bass in his time with me. Here he is pictured with two very proud musical parents...his composition professors! 🙂 Congrats Stephen!

There’s a recording online here....https://soundcloud.com/staeveriksson/lived-perpetually-oblique?fbclid=IwAR2LTEC9e5g1inHGPGtM4d3zYEwUzR0E4lPEGeQYT_8KEp6v4aUI6PQlvoM

I had some visitors last night. After the big reveal of “how to hide an orchestra in plain sight”, Lana got a tour of the pit with her Grandmom and Grandpop.
