Tuning our instrument

Posted by Nick Constantine on Thu Apr 19th, 2012, 0 comments

This helps a lot of people who approach form analysis in a heavy handed manner. That is they would like instant or quick results after the session. The instrument analogy is a strong one because it allows the principle of practice and mastery to be understood.

'Getting it' takes time and although we would love to play fast pieces of music there is a deep understanding that practice makes perfect. Running in my mind is no different from any other skill. As you understand your instrument, alignment and breath you will get the best out of it. Even as we get older your will simply sound different.
