Mr. Trevor, I find the way you keep up your side-muso and personal projects admirable and am wondering: as a composer and interpreter specifically, how do you go about assigning your days or hours to ensure both motor along fine?
Thanks and be well.


I’m not as organized as I’d like to be, but I try to limit my “partying” and social time. Many years ago I realized I was going to be spending a lot of time indoors practicing while peers were out in the sun having fun. I’m ok with that. Essentially if I’m not touring and have the luxury of waking up in my own bed I get to work immediately after breakfast and continue until late night. “Work” includes a lot of things. There is the bureaucratic side of emails and chores, etc. So, in general, I try to have some semblance of a routine. I also have to let things hover until the time is right, such as practicing for an upcoming gig or learning someone else’s music. Boundaries are good.
