The Open Practice Room - all out of episodes...

Kudos to all the hosts and DJs who have been going strong, because I cannot find the energy to air every week! I don't think I will continue into the summer, but thank you to those of you who tuned in. One of my original ideas for the summer was to shed light on how COVID-19 has effected the music profession.

Again, I appreciate the listenership. I hope you're all taking care at home and finding some time to make some of your own music. While I am not practicing regularly these days, I still find Instagram a more portable platform for when I do have some practice thoughts to share - you can find me at @df.violin.
