New Member - Johnny - Saying Hello

Post by johnnyrowing » Mon Jan 08, 2018 6:15 pm

I went to my first Road Rally in November and loved it. I joined Taxi in December and I have been poking around in the forums. I didn't really have anything great to say. So, I haven't posted yet. I am giving up on a great first post and I will just post this instead - Hello.

I am excited to work hard and see what 2018 brings. Whether they be songs or cues, I hope to complete 100 pieces of music by the end of the year - that is just shy of 2 a week. That goal will push me - but with discipline - I should be able to make it.

I learned more than I can remember at the Rally and more than my note-taking could keep up with. I guess that means I will have to return next year and tighten up those notes. Still, even with the information that did stick, I have plenty of new things to think about. So thanks to Taxi and thanks to its gracious and supportive members. It is exciting to pursue a dream together.

I have lots to learn. So, I'm sure I will be poking around in these forums and reading some of the books that Taxi recommends.

See you out there.
Johnny

Hey Johnny! So great to see that you've finally joined the forums. Can't wait to see & hear what you cook up this year. Joining Taxi and becoming a Forum member are two major steps to making a career out of this, and that you've done both things now shows that you're uber serious.

P.S. for those who might not have met Johnny at the Rally, he was a guest of mine, and lives about 10 minutes away from me here outside of Boise Idaho. He's one cool cat!

Welcome Johnny

Good that you took the plunge. If you are not in the arena then nothing will happen.

Thanks Anna. I have already listened to some of your tracks and I love them.

I will share some music soon. I don't have a Soundcloud account yet but it is on my things-to-do list. :)
