(back) Subject: Re: Morning Mishaps :) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 29 Sep 2003 00:03:41 EDT   Hi Alicia:   Can I offer a suggestion? What happened to you this morning used to happen to me. The solution I came up with is to copy the pages from that big bulky book OCP provides and insert them into those nice plastic sleves available at Office Depot and put them in a three hole binder. I buy them by the hundered count. It takes a bit of pre playing preparation, but everything is in order from start to finish. if you use a misalette with the congregation, or the yearly hymnal in the pews I always include the page and hymn numbers on computer stickers that are easily removed if the hymn numbers or pages change from season to season. I never know if there is going to be a reader or not so I make sure I'm not caught looking for directions to give the congregation at the last second. No page is going to blow in the wind or fall on the floor. I also pretab music requiring fast page turns. I do the same thing with Mass accompaniments, Responsorial Psalms, and all the other accompanied responses. They can be put in order in a few minutes and you just turn pages beginning to end. No more frazzle, everything is ORGANized. (To keep this on topic) <G>   I have three binders going now, 1. Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, 2. Ordinary Time, and 3. Lent, Triduum, Easter, Pentecost. Everything is there, easy to add to and maintain. To establish it takes a gradual bit of doing, to maintain it a snap. I used to mount music on heavy cardboard, but this is much more efficient. I use my computer scanner as a copy machine. It's really nice for home planning. Since it falls to me to chose the music, I make my planning sheets for the readers 12-18 weeks in advance when a new missallete comes out. I can then relax, knowing everything is in order and ready at a moments notice. Nothing fancy, but it works. My ideas are adaptable to any situation.   Ron Severin

He thought I needed more power and authority in my playing = of the opening theme of the 1st movement. I wasn't bold enough in my = entry - I needed to dominate proceedings, right from the start. His = solution was for me to sing to myself "Here I am, and if you don't like = this, you can go to hell!" as I played the theme. It certainly made = the opening statement of the concerto much stronger. Those words gave = this kid just the right idea at the right time.   John Ross Albury NSW Australia
