to stay with your role as the messenger
who brings the audience this gift.
This is your obligation and your pleasure.
and allow ourselves to be touched by it,
we can enter a world of balance, perfection and beauty.
In this space, we are able to perform
from a place of potential that we often don’t realize
exists within each and every one of us.
This place of musical magic is always there,
as close as our own concentration.
flowing through you and trust the instincts
you have established through passion and practice,
you are far more likely to get the individual notes right
and project the spirit of the music loud and clear.
And it is that spirit of the music
that the audience actually responds to.
in the comfort of your private practice space.
But expressing oneself in public
demands a higher level of mastery.
or a larger group of musicians, or with an audience,
is the essence of communication.
There has to be a willingness to participate
that comes from trusting or letting go
to the energy and spirit of the music, whether
you are a performer or a member of the audience.
This communication is made possible
by the silent rhythm that connects everyone.
This is what allows for spontaneous magic
to lift people into a perfect synchrony
where everyone can perform
and experience the music as one.
