What are the take aways for students?
- Mindful practice is effective and rewarding. Just fooling around at the keyboard is just fooling yourself.
- The power of association is key to maintaining enthusiasm. Who we hang with matters. Being around dedicated inspiring musicians, both students and professionals elevates our game.
- Live music inspires and fuels your imagination: Randy Brecker, Brain Lynch, Victor Wooten, John Patitucci, Groove for Thought vocal group, Arturo O'Farrill, the list goes on and on.
- Attending teaching workshops keeps the enthusiasm high and the knowledge up to date of yours truly. I'm looking forward to sharing with all my new knowledge and experiences with my students.
