Sometimes it’s difficult to know how to get started, especially with very large projects like starting an ensemble. Do you find partners, the audience, the musicians, or the music first? What’s the very first step for each of those? It seems like so many things must happen at the same time. Perhaps try writing everything down and picking something easily done to create momentum. Or maybe go after the most challenging thing. Either way, do something. Be wrong. Fail. Be right. Fail again. Pick yourself up. Keep chipping away at things—they always take more time than you think and will require yet-unthought solutions to problems you didn’t know existed. The only way to know is to do.
