studio gumption 11


Episode #32 of S.O.G. brings you Dr. Jon Mulholland, the owner and chiropractor of The Ideal Athlete Chiropractic ( ). For Jon, consistency over time is one of the most rewarding forms of gumption. Jon has worked with multiple US Olympic teams, travelled the world, published several articles, and continues to teach for RockTape. This is an episode packed full of great conversation. Personally, it was fantastic to hear Jon's position (backed by research) on the growing trend of minimalist running and the zero-drop shoe.

In this episode of S.O.G., Ryan sits down with Danielle Howard-Ross for a great conversation about gumption, running, and the art negotiation. In particular, Danielle shares her experience running the New York City Marathon with only 6 weeks to train. Then, later on Danielle shares her perspective on the importance of negotiation skills in life and business.

In this episode of S.O.G., Zack & Katie Hoyt stop by the studio to share their amazing story of gumption. Starting in separate careers and meeting when they were both still in high school, Zack & Kate are now the successful owners of Spar-Kil-Kleen in Upstate NY. They share the incredible story of how their child, Macie Hoyt, was born with spina bifida, the "ups and downs" of that experience, and how it, ultimately, brought them closer together.

Jalen McKee-Rodriguez: It's crazy. My team and I, we spent a lot of time thinking about that after the election, is that I am the first and the district really did this. It means a lot, as in the way that I feel as though I carry a lot of that burden or a lot of pressure to represent well, because I know I'm not the first to try. I'm not the first to be qualified and I'm not the first with the passion and gumption to go after it, but I'm the first to be given a chance. I want to make it easier for the second and third, for those who come after me to get through the door.

What should I play? I've been in the habit of playing at the end of the studio recital, and I've enjoyed doing it. Because of my little audition a few weeks back, I've spent several months working up orchestral excerpts and concerto first movements. Hey, I could play the Scherzo from Schumann Symphony No. 2! Or, the first 27 bars of Mozart's 39! No, no, too common. How about the Adagio from Mahler Symphony 10? That's a show-stopper!Okay, hah hah. But I didn't even want to play either of the concertos I worked up. I'm just sick of it all!I turned to the Tchaikovsky "Meditation." Back in December, I'd heard Joshua Bell playing it on the radio; it's on his latest Tchaik album. (Do only old people say "album" any more?) I'd forgotten the existence of this piece, though I knew it well because of a recording I had of my teacher Gerardo Ribeiro playing it. I really had to search to find the music, which I got for Christmas and promptly set aside, so I could practice for orchestra concerts, auditions, etc. But I really wanted to play it, especially on the Italian. Whoo, up there on the G! Still, shouldn't I maybe play my Mozart concerto that I had all polished up for the audition?"How much progress are you going to make on the piece you really want to play if you play the piece you're sick of?" asked Robert, in typically logical, non-musician fashion. It's been a long month, I guess I could use some Meditation. From bill _Posted on May 11, 2006 at 4:11 PMIf I were you, I wouldn't play at the student recital. I would want the parents, children and family to go home with the memory of their own playing being fresh in their minds.Just be sure to put your best playing student last :-) From Laurie NilesPosted on May 11, 2006 at 5:13 PMIt's nice for them to hear something other than Suzuki music. They know their teacher, and they know I like to play! From Laura YehPosted on May 11, 2006 at 6:54 PMI have to disagree with Bill. I always play on my students' recitals. It's important for the them to hear professionals perform so they can have a model for good playing. It's especially great for them to hear non-student pieces. Many of them ask me when they'll get to play whatever piece I played. It's a vital part of the recital.Good for you Laurie for choosing to keep it fresh and fun! Good luck to you and all your students at the recital.-Laura From Clare ChuPosted on May 11, 2006 at 7:19 PMHi Laurie, wow, I really admire all the gumption you have with the audition and playing at the student recital.Speaking as a parent and a student I can say that the teacher playing at the end is always special. We look forward to it, and it inspires the students as well as reassures the parents that the teacher enjoys playing and performing. Besides, it has the added benefit of ensuring that everyone stays until the end. I'd say go for the Meditation since that is what you want to play on your Italian, even if it's not clinically perfected like the Mozart is, I think parents and students will appreciate the heart you put into it. Besides I'm sure you'll have it perfected by the time of the recital anyway. Cheers! From D WrightPosted on May 11, 2006 at 9:00 PMYou're right not to play your audition pieces. When my friend had her own auditions with the Toronto Symphony she calmed down by playing the Mendelssohn d minor trio and reminding herself how much fun it can be to play music for the joy of it. From Laurie NilesPosted on May 12, 2006 at 4:14 AMThanks everyone! The nice thing about doing this piece is that I really love it, and since I don't have to do three hours of other stuff, I have been able to simply enjoy playing it a lot! I do want us all to have fun, then party at Mrs. Niles' house. :) I think I'll pop "They Shall Have Music" into the VCR while everyone snacks and socializes! From Mister BruciePosted on May 12, 2006 at 5:58 AMMaybe only "old" people say "album" any more, but it's still an accurate word since it means "collection" (as in "photo album"). Same goes for "record." A CD (or MP3 or whatever) is not vinyl, but it is a RECORD in the sense that it's a recorded thing.If you refer to some piece you heard on a wax cylinder, however, I'm afraid you might have trouble passing for ... um... shall we say, under 39. P.S. playing on students' recitals is a wonderful idea and fun for everyone, in my experience at least. Just make sure it's a recital of your own students, not someone else's. :-o This entry has been archived and is no longer accepting comments.

Welcome once again to our annual "first look" at the broadcast networks' offerings for the 2011-2012 season, now in its sixth year! Each day we'll walk you through one of the new series set to premiere next season (or one that didn't make the cut) and go over our initial impressions after viewing the pilot. Keep in mind that a lot can change from what's being screened right now - recasting, reshooting, etc. - but we still want to give you a heads up on what you should (and shouldn't) keep on your radar in the coming months. So enough of our rambling, on with the show![IMPORTANT NOTE: The following is based on the original sales presentation which was screened to us privately or supplied by a third party NOT an informational, not-for-review screener provided by the network in question.] PRIME SUSPECT (NBC)(written by Alexandra Cunningham; directed by Peter Berg; TRT: ) The network's description: "Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name, "Prime Suspect" has been redeveloped for American audiences by writer Alexandra Cunningham ("Desperate Housewives," "NYPD Blue"), director Peter Berg (NBC's "Friday Night Lights") -- and stars Maria Bello ("A History of Violence") as tough-as-nails Detective Jane Timoney. Timoney finds that being a homicide detective in New York City is tough enough and having to contend with a male-dominated police department to get respect makes it that much tougher. She's an outsider who has just transferred to a new precinct dominated by an impenetrable clique of a boys' club. Timoney has her own vices too -- with a questionable past -- and she tends to be forceful, rude and reckless. But she's also a brilliant cop who keeps her eye on one thing: the prime suspect. Also starring are Aidan Quinn ("Unknown"), Brian O'Byrne ("Flash Forward"), Tim Griffin ("Star Trek"), Kirk Acevedo ("Fringe"), Joe Nieves ("How I Met Your Mother"), Damon Gupton ("The Last Airbender") and Peter Gerety ("Blue Bloods"). "Prime Suspect" is produced by Universal Media Studios, ITV and Film 44. Cunningham is the executive producer/writer along with executive producer/director Berg and executive producers Sarah Aubrey, Julie Meldal-Johnson, Paul Buccieri and Lynda LaPlante."What did they leave out? Jane's boyfriend in the pilot, played by Toby Stephens, is being recast.The plot in a nutshell: Jane Timoney (Maria Bello) isn't your typical detective with the NYPD. While most of her peers are concerned with evacuating their bowels, singing birthday wishes to their daughters and sharing a drink or two with the captain (Aidan Quinn), Jane's radar for the job is always up. And while the typical cop would get frustrated with an overly difficult witness or not bother with sweet talking potential lookouts, Jane finds a way to get the knuckleheads of the world to play ball. Unfortunately she's also a woman. Said facet, despite her obvious skills, makes her persona non grata in the station house as she's constantly left out of the loop and frozen out of cases. "She's one of us until it suits her not to be," barks Jake Keating (Jason Beghe), one such cop.An unexpected confluence of events however sees Jane tasked with a high profile case involving a brutal rape/murder of a mother in front of her two children in the Upper East Side. Her leadership however is met with resistance by her fellow detectives - the openly bitter Reg Duffy (Brian O'Byrne), the reluctantly game Luisito Calderon (Kirk Acevedo), the secretly impressed Eddie Gautier (Joe Nieves), among others - at every turn. They see the easy culprit in a family friend who was conveniently the first on the scene while she thinks it may be tied to an ongoing series in the nearby neighborhood. Not surprisingly her attempts to discount the former ruffles their feathers even further. Ultimately, her instincts prove to be right and Jane is on her way to carving her own niche in the precinct, much to some of its members' chagrins.What works: Bello brings an interesting energy to Jane that elevates the show beyond its anachronisms, which we'll come back to in a second. Sure she's the prototypical tough gal cop but there's a smart edge to her that proves to be a lot of fun. Whether it's making them faux deputies or arranging their statements to look like demo tapes, Jane continues to find amusing ways - both comedic and dramatic - to manipulate witnesses. They're tactics that not only make her a better detective than her peers but also more entertaining to watch. One hopes the series will continue to explore said path as it progresses...What doesn't: ...and hopefully leave behind the sexist cloud that covers the pilot. Duffy and company's attitudes feel painfully dated and forced, as if they've been transported from the original 1991 mini-series rather than exist in present day. I'm sure these types of characters exist in 2011 but to have an entire station full of them borders on science fiction. It doesn't help that their cartoonish snarling at Jane is accompanied with keystone-esque incompetence for the job. The guys are all lazy and looking for shortcuts whereas Jane - gasp! - actually thinks. The dichotomy is so black and white you'd think it was a live action Sherwin-Williams paint swatch.I was also disappointed to see how little of Jane's character is unpacked in the pilot. We never quite see what motivates her to be a detective other than the obvious boilerplate: she worships her dad (Peter Gerety) and frustrates her live-in boyfriend (Toby Stephens). Considering how cleverly she handles her job, I was hoping to see a more compelling insight into what makes her tick. I was likewise surprised with how limply the central cases resolves itself: rather than being ground out by Jane's smarts, most of it hinges on blind luck or being the fruit of innocuous trees. All in all, there's a gumption to "Prime Suspect" at work under the surface that hasn't quite blossomed. The bottom line: Here's hoping it does.
