Embracing Not Being in Charge

February 16th, 2015 by Katherine Moller

I recently had a moment of self-realization… I am a part of several bands, and either by desire or default, usually end up being the person in charge. This means booking gigs, making set lists, arranging rehearsals, etc. I have always complained about being the person in charge, but it would seem that I like [...]

Calm After the Storm: Post Post-Tropical Storm Arthur

July 14th, 2014 by Katherine Moller

Post-tropical storm Arthur stopped by last week for a visit and knocked the power in my hometown of Fredericton, NB out for over a week.  My husband and I went for just over 6 days without power, but there are still some people without power 11 days later.  These people are the exception as NB [...]

Walking 2014km in 2014

January 27th, 2014 by Katherine Moller

I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but I guess it is a bit late for that by now anyway!  I do enjoy taking time every January to look at the year that was and look forward to the year that will be.  I like to set a few goals for myself, and I must [...]

Getting Back on Track – Food, Exercise, Music

September 17th, 2013 by Katherine Moller

I hope that you all enjoyed your summer.  I perhaps enjoyed mine a little too much!  I relaxed a bit and enjoyed some time off from my usual routine.  I ate whatever I wanted, did not do any of my exercises, and did not practice my technique on the fiddle/violin.  By the end of the [...]

Returning to my Roots: A Fiddler Busking

June 24th, 2013 by Katherine Moller

I have an admission to make…  I love busking!  When I was in university I spent a lot of time on stage performing, but also started busking.  I have busked in Ireland, British Columbia, and New Brunswick.  I have busked at farmers’ markets, on city streets, at gas stations…  It actually all started when my [...]

Practicing Patience…

May 28th, 2013 by Katherine Moller

As many of you know, I am driven and work very hard at what I do.  I like to be successful and see progress is whatever it is that I am doing, but I am continually reminded to be patient, in all things in life:  music, career, health… The most recent example of this for [...]

Confessions of a Shy Fiddler

April 29th, 2013 by Katherine Moller

There have been a couple of big new items over the past couple of week.  On the East Coast, one of the big items was Rita McNeil’s passing at the age of 68.  A music icon, she had an effect of many people’s lives. Over the past couple of weeks, many people have talked about [...]

I have not been playing one of my violins for over year now.  This violin is the one that my parents bought for me when I was in university and is the instrument that I have used for most of my classical performances ever since.  Over a year ago, I noticed that the top was [...]
