The Dance of Improvement and Expression

What's your favourite flavour of practice?

Are you a Type A striver who likes to knuckle down and do the deep analytical practice? Or do you subscribe to more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-and-let-my-body-do-its-thing practice routine?

And can we have both?

How can we ensure that we train great habits so we can trust that we'll hit the right notes and play without tension in performance? But in the same breath don't get stuck playing music like a paint-by-numbers robot?

This episode explores the dance we must do if we want to get better at our craft while still keeping the joyful expression that is the lifeblood of music alive.
