It’s September, and almost 6 months to the day since lockdown started - whilst there are signs of things slowly starting to get going again, for us musicians the last 6 months has involved a lot of down time, and I don’t know about you but it’s given me time to reflect on my journey from graduation up to this point. Ithink often when life is busy we are always thinking about the next thing, and don’t have the time to just sit and look back at how far we’ve come. And whilst of course we don’t want to get stuck in the past, there’s a lot to be learnt from reflecting on our journey, the ups and downs, the successes and, not failures but learning curves. I’ve always loved listening to other people’s stories and hearing the things they’ve learnt and wish they could have told their younger selves, so today I am going to do just that, and share with you three things that I would tell my younger self if I could go back in time and talk to the Hannah that was at the start of her career as a freelance musician, and I hope that if you are at that starting point now these three things will be an encouragement to you.
