I had a good year in our band, and am getting back to being almost as good at the trombone as I used to be when I was in school. I am getting used to the bass trombone and almost have enough puff to play complete phrases now.
I continue to be one of the only members who both read and play dynamics and who watch the conductor. Someone has to.
I had no organ-playing engagements in 2011 after my resurgence in 2010 at one carol concert. But I have heard a lot of terrible organ playing. It is a shame that my collapse into irreligiosity has deprived the world of my genius (read: mediocrity). Playing an organ is an interesting thing, and it can be quite physical, but at its heart it is about following other people. A lot of organists forget this. Also, a lot are in their nineties, which is a challenge.
I practised the piano very infrequently in 2011 and must improve this over the next year.
I wrote 80% of a carol, and composed nothing else. As usual. My opera is on hold until after I have passed all of my exams.
