#001 – Music Blog – “On the Road” with Chuck and Sandi
Introduction to “On The Road” - Ad..
What’s your dream?
We want you to join us on our musical travel adventure that we’re about to embark on. We’ll venture into all sorts of places where music exists across the United States and report back on the Lesson Pros Music Blog, and share what we’ve learned with you. We’ll tell stories of the people we meet, places we go and the meaning behind the music we find there and you get a front row seat by keeping tuned into our Music Blog.
Our names are Chuck and Sandi Millar and we’re traveling musicians who’ve played music all over the United States. Typically our main genres of music are singer/songwriter, folk and bluegrass music however, we love all types of music and aim to foster interest in all types of music and promote the education of it, whatever type of music it may be and wherever we are in the world.
For the past 15 years, we’ve been on the road doing music full time, we’ve taught and played everything from huge music festivals to the tiniest coffee houses and loving every minute of it. We’ve worked our own music lessons businesses and other jobs at home, but decided that we are happiest when touring and traveling the United States and hope to explained to other parts of the world. As music writers we’ve wanted to start our new adventure along with a new project, the Lesson Pros Music Blog and are exited to share it with you.
Hayley and Kaysie, our two daughters are almost grown up and may find their way into the music blog from time to time. One is in college and the other graduating from high school this year. About 3 years ago, we made a plan that when our girls were both out of high school and settled into the next chapter of their lives that we would head back on the road to do music full time again. They are both encouraging and supportive of this decision and couldn’t be happier to get rid of us for a while, hah 🙂
Downsizing our house has been a monstrous task job since Sandi has been collecting antiques since 1990. Here are some ideas on ways to get rid of your stuff.
#1 – We’ve had over 20 online auctions through k-bid (a local online auction house)
#2 – Donated to various charities
#3 – Sold stuff on craigslist
#4 – Sold on the Facebook Garage Sale Sites
#5 – Sold on the Facebook Marketplace
#6 – Sold on eBay
#7 – Sold on Amazon
Who knew how much time it would take to get rid of everything you have collected your whole lives. It’s crazy how freeing it is to let go of all the piles of stuff you’ve collected over the years.
Our goal of the music blog was for two reasons.
#1 – To help musicians to become better musicians.
#2 – To inspire and foster the culture of music in the world by sharing our musical experiences.
Now, the time is getting closer and our projected leave date is January 1st 2019.
