Practice (Lesson 1) - Listening Intently

David Barrett Admin's picture

“Everyone starts out in music as a listener. As young children, we hear music with freshness and delight. We fall in love with it and are entranced by the simplest song. But when we start practicing an instrument, we stop listening intently. We become so involved with producing sound that we forget to take it in.” Pg 12, The Art of Practicing: A Guide to Making Music From the Heart by Madeline Bruser
