Ok, it is time to get back to blogging.Â I took some time off because I wanted to get a few things worked out before I talked about them in public.Â I wanted to be able to make some decisions about things without a lot of controversy or discussion.Â The decision was mine, and I didn’t really want a lot of people to know about it until it actually happened.Â Well, it has, and now the near future is set in its course now.
Yes, I am talking about the Triangle Brass Band Music Director position.Â I discuss this process in a previous post.Â What happened with this process was going to have a lot to do with some other things that I have been doing.Â So, now I will be Directing the TBB, the TYBB, and watching over the whole organization.Â We will see if I can handle the work load next season before I make a decision about changing anything.Â There is a scenario out there that may have me leaving the youth band, although it is unlikely to happen this season, or next season.Â The right person to take that band over has to come out for me to move on, and I am not quite ready to leave that band as of yet.Â I don’t know that I ever will want to leave it.Â It is so much fun.
So, there have been some very interesting changes in the last year or so.Â Leaving Green Hope and not working with their marching band anymore, adding on the NC Central teaching job, now the Triangle Brass Band… Good things.Â I have to adjust some things in order to make this happen now, but some of these changes are actually good for me.
So, you can look for regular blog updates from now on, and I will try to document the process of taking the TBB in a new direction, from the inside out.
PS- I am going to win the NCAA Tournament Pool that I am in.Â It hurts to say this, but Go Carolina…win me some money.
