"The only real valuable thing is intuition." -- Albert Einstein
|Charlie Chaplin and Albert Einstein|
Today, I want to emphasize our method of practicing this new way of working. We actually do most of the work while “off-stage,” throughout the day, not just while rehearsing. All of our students can tell you their personal stories of how this method affected their work, so trust it and try it. Soon you’ll feel a whole new world of rhythms surround you as you perform.
1. On your iPod or any MP3 player, create a playlist of various songs that are not familiar to your ear, preferably the ones that keep changing the rhythms and intensity of the notes. Look for different qualities of instrumental sounds and voices. Please refer to my previous post for how to select your songs.
If you would like to receive a list of songs we provide our students with, please send us your request via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
