Rock School Session (September 20 2015)[i]

Waking up at 11 a.m. to the most obnoxious jet noise. You would think I'd be immune to the sound by now but damn, it sounds like a war in the sky at 11 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Peaches, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.

Today is my first day coaching rock school sessions. We've got three bands scheduled in the theater room at the music space. They all range from novice to intermediate; some of them are even my private lessons students. Between myself, Drew, and Jimmy we manage to get at least one song structured and performed for each band. It's a lot of fun motivating these kids. The whole point is to give them experience in playing with bands – what it's like working and playing music in a group situation.

Chic Pea Salad Sandwich with Tomato. Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato. Honey Green Tea. Grapes.



Making dinner: Leftover Beans, Rice, Onions, Red Peppers, Celery, Cauliflower, and Shishito Peppers.

Practicing stuff on the piano.

Later on, I hassle Ana in her bedroom. She wanted to show me a song she's been learning on guitar. We catch up on the day's events while I stretch my legs out and get angsty cause she keeps pausing the song. She's also been learning how to play bass since Elliott asked her to try it out.

Off topic Ana says, "Can I tell you something? Whenever I see a big butt I have to look at it."


Sleep 4 a.m.
