This week marked the start of a new chapter for me. I began classes at the University of British Columbia in the education program. In 12 months I will (hopefully) be the proud holder of a shiny new B.Ed degree, with my focus being music education for students in secondary school.
The transition has already been difficult; having to say goodbye to most of my private students was not easy. I'm also not looking forward to likely needing to turn down some gigs, although I will of course continue to perform as much as I can reasonably manage.
By all accounts this program is one that will keep be very busy, but I'm looking forward to learning lots as I embark on this new part of my music career.
