Daily Diary Of A Nashville Musician
I’ve been reading a lot about productivity lately, and I realized how much I enjoy finding out how different people structure their time. Which got me wondering if you all would like to see how I break down my day. Here’s what a typical day looks like for me:
7 AM: wake up, crawl out of bed. Grab some sunflower seeds, a bottle of water, and head for the gym.
7:30 AM: do weightlifting and about 10 minutes of cardio. Shower, head home.
8:30 AM: let the Siberian huskies out of the basement, kiss my wife goodbye, then sit down to practice.
9 AM-10:30 AM: Practice piano. I sight read, practice improvisation, play some Bach to keep my independent finger motion polished.
10:30 AM-Noon: record in my home studio. I have a stack of songs I’ve been working on for the last few months. The high paying items move to the front of the schedule, and the low-paying work goes to the back.
Noon-1:30 PM: go to lunch with my wife.
2 PM-5 PM: Do house cleaning, run errands, do misc. projects.
5:30 PM: fix dinner.
6 PM: eat dinner with my wife.
7 PM: work on tasks like MainStage patches, recording projects, etc.
9 PM: watch Star Trek or play cards with wife.
10:30 PM: go to bed.
Of course, this drastically changes depending on the day. Last week, I had two all-day sessions that ran from 10 AM-6 PM, and when I'm on the road there's almost no routine at all. Still, I figured you'd like to see how things break down for me.
