Practice for Others

Send your sound out

If you've been following so far, I'm experimenting with energy and resonance. How can I release energy and sound into the room? In most lessons with Dr. Rob Murray, he takes the pressure off of me, and has me focus on what I want to convey to the audience. This is great for so many reasons.

It has trickled down into many aspects of my playing, and today I was reminded to release the sound and energy into the room because I'm not practicing for me. Let the sound resonate; don't keep it for yourself, Adam (I frequent talk in 3rd person during practice). Granted, this concept is easier to grasp if you're regularly getting out there and playing for others. We practice to perform, so others can enjoy our music; let's practice like it.

Time to keep exploring,
