pict BS: 'What do you listen to'? (20) RE: BS: 'What do you listen to'? 25 Feb 03


I think that listening to as many different types of music that you can has equal importance with theory and actual time spent perfecting the mechanics of playing an instrument.The more you hear the more ideas you have on how to make your own music more interesting whether composing or interpreting.I think that many musicians aim at virtuosity to such an extent that they confuse virtuosity with good musicianship.In my opinion virtuosity should serve musical ideas and to ignore the amazing variety of musical ideas that are out there in order to become merely a fluent operator of a musical instrument seems a bit pointless to me.
