Taking the Lead

A has been enjoying her time with her rock band, and I think it's been good on a number of levels. First and foremost, she's having fun, but being in a band is forcing her to make time to practice and learn new material. It also gives her ample opportunity to challenge herself and operate outside of her comfort zone. Case in point: at her last gig, she not only had to do some vocals, but she took over on lead guitar on a few songs. She was nervous and I can't say I blame her, but she did an outstanding job.

Again, she is perfectly capable of elevating her level of performance, it just requires breaking out of what you're used to and comfortable with, and that's never easy. TS, her mentor, encourages putting yourself out there and growing from the experience. I think it's been a great experience for her, and of course I love to see it. This past weekend her band played at a party and she not only sang and played lead, but she had a solo, as well.

How cool is that? The life of a rock star, the dream is alive.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Jeff Coble for the pic.
