“Our object is to minimize the contrast between studio practice and public performance.”
–Philip Farkas, hornist (The Musician’s Way, p. 149)
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.
