Ready to work

“Tonight’s office”.

It’s a common social media post for musicians, usually accompanied with a picture of their instrument/instruments proudly displayed, set up and ready to go.

Ready to work. It’s a good feeling. Far better than not being ready, arriving late, setting up your gear in a rush and trying to catch up with what the rest of the band is doing.

Of course working for musicians is not just playing the gig – it’s rehearsing, it’s writing, it’s arranging, it’s booking gigs.


Be ready to work. It might require more planning, but it makes for better work. And it feels good.

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
