Play Piano Today With Dr. J

Archive for June 2013

Looking for inspiration to recharge your own creativity?  You might want to:

  1. Support the local arts scene. Go to a local festival, music event, art show, play, museum exhibit.  Visit www.bachandsons.com to find the location for the next live Bach and Sons concert in your area.
  2. Grab a stack of magazines, and clip whatever looks interesting or cool to create your own inspiration board.
  3. Read a book of short stories such as  On the Heels of an Organist.
  4. Go for a walk, and take your camera with you to document the experience.
  5. Stop by the library, and check out some CDs.
  6. Take a long soak in a hot bathtub
  7. Watch the sun rise or set
  8. See an Oscar-nominated movie or a foreign film.
  9. Listen to your favorite music while sipping on a cup of hot cocoa or cappuccino
  10. Visit a “creative” shop that has nothing to do with what you actually do–an art supply store, a fabric shop, a music store.

Boundless, unending sources of inspiration are yours for the taking!  Let your world heighten your senses and creativity.

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist
