Poignant memory: By the time I made it to university, my life to date was very difficult most of the time (recap: I was 21 yo, and never studied or played any instrument prior). And then I went to music school. Times turned bleak. There was no money. None. I worked 2 jobs to pay for, and attend class full-time, additionally practicing the instrument 4 to 6 hours a day – everyday. Money ran out every other Wednesday. Paid again on Fridays. Every other Wednesday, I would buy enough gasoline to make the 30 mile commute through to Friday classes, and, I would buy a pack of cigarettes (I am not a cigarette smoker). Smoking the cigarettes curbed my appetite, becoming my meals from Wednesday night until I could get paid on Friday at 7p. This lasted for several months. Those were tough days.
I never missed one class at school. Not one. I’ve heard since, that Cubans under the Castro regime would do the same thing when times for them got very difficult i.e., smoking of cigarettes to curb the appetite. The human spirit trying to advance, I guess.
The University acknowledging my work is a huge feeling of accomplishment for me. I am very grateful to the University, the UTA Music Department, and Jazz Director Bill Snodgrass for giving me a chance. I was honored with a visit from UTA president, James Spaniolo, here in SF 2009. That was a fun day.
