Build on Your Success in 2015

Posted on: January 10, 2015

As we look toward 2015, I encourage you to BUILD ON YOUR SUCCESS! Take a moment to look back on 2014 and re-examine the goals you set and the successes you had. Too often we look only to the future and forget to revel in the joy of goals accomplished and challenges conquered before moving on to the next “big thing”.

I encourage you to look at your past year of organ study and ask yourself two questions:

What did I do well?

What could I have done differently?

Your reflections and answers to those two simple questions will help you move into 2015 with renewed energy and enthusiasm for your organ study.

So what will building on your success of 2014 look like in 2015? Following are just a few of the great ideas I’ve heard in the past week:

enjoying my performances and performing with a smile

improving reading skills

performing organ duets

preparing and performing a solo recital

adding trumpet tunes to my repertoire

reworking old pieces with my improved skills

preparing for college entrance exams

understanding and applying registration skills to my repertoire

planning and preparing repertoire for the Spring recital

So, let the excitement begin!

Dr. Jeannine Jordan has a studio of 18 adult organ students and weekly shares in the excitement of helping these students realize their goals and dreams. She is also a concert organist who performs the multi-media concert experiences, Bach and Sons and From Sea to Shining Sea with her husband David Jordan, media specialist.
