There Isn't Any There There

Andrew Hitz

“When you get there, there isn’t any there there.”

-Zen Proverb

In an intensive field like music, perspective is everything.  Whether you are a middle school band director or a violinist in a major symphony, if you want to keep your sanity you must focus on the journey and not the arrival.

This industry is littered with former professionals who focused on the latter and ended up out of the business, either by choice or not.
