I was jamming this evening at the Cavern Club in Downtown Toronto this evening. A room full of adults making music. I will admit most were much younger than I but not all.
Hobbyists, music students, and a few aspiring Divas and ambitious Punk bands. Yep, quite a banquet of fun.
Next month I plan to join a local classical music night where adults also get up and strut their musical stuff.
Here are a few thoughts on the activity:
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted percussionist and drum teacher.
