I’ve been a practicing musician for most of my life. The guitar is my instrument of choice. While I don’t make a living as a guitarist, I am always pushing myself to improve my playing.
After decades of playing rock and jazz, I shifted my musical focus towards the classical guitar about seven or eight years ago. Whole new worlds of music opened up before me. I discovered terrific performers and composers to which I was previously blind. As I dug deeper into this world and learned a lot of new and challenging music, I started to realize it was becoming difficult to retain command of the music I was learning over the long term.
For the past few years, I’ve been thinking about and tinkering with a new way to make better use of my practice time and gain more command over my repertoire. I also wanted another avenue to help me discover new music which I might like to learn, as well as a music-focused alternative to YouTube and Soundcloud on which I could publish recordings, both private and public. I’ve been building this platform, and I call it Repertoireist.
Are you a practicing musician? If so, I think you’ll find value in it, too. Take a few moments to read Introducing Repertoireist to learn more about this project. If it strikes your fancy, I’d love to hear from you.
