Forward-looking or Forward-thinking in 2020?

Webster’s Dictionary defines Forward-Looking as “concerned with or planning for the future.” A forward-looking individual is someone who is particularly focused on the future and making plans for it–someone who looks ahead. Is there a better definition of musician than that?

The actual definition of musician, “one who is skilled in music,” leaves out so much of who and what we are! By necessity and practicality we are forward-looking individuals. We have to be focused on the future and making detailed plans for it. Most of us lack the qualities and skills of a Bach or Mozart and are unable to compose, perform, or teach without weeks, months, or sometimes even years of planning and preparation. That is who we are. This week, the first full week of the New Year, is littered with forward-looking meetings, encounters, emails, and practice.

As a teacher, the fall series of lessons culminating with a wonderful December recital by my students is over, and the forward-looking work of preparing schedules, and making lesson plans for the next six months of sharing the joy of music with my students is here.

As a performer, the successful presentation of our Bach and Sons, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Around the World in 80 Minutes organ and multiimedia events last fall are a wonderful memory, but now the Forward-Looking intensive practice and preparation for various concerts this spring demand my immediate attention.

As Musicians we have many detailed demands of planning and scheduling for the future. If we are successful we are doing our Forward-Looking well.
