“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”

Quote of the Day: Musicality

“Music is the sound of feelings.”

~Anonymous

A good tip of advice for musicians or aspiring musicians! Whether you’re playing in a competition, at a recital, or simply for fun, the key to a good performance is feelings. Though it sounds cheesy and rather superficial, I have used this method several times in competitions. In the midst of a performance, not many people will pay attention to note accuracy (of course, this is in the case that you do not  stop and completely mess up), however, if you play stiffly, your performance will be affected greatly.

Express yourself the next time you play 🙂

“I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.” 
― Oscar WildeThe Happy Prince and Other Stories

This seems to happen to me quite often – especially when writing essays for school. Next time the teacher decides to shave off a few points because my article is “unclear in its meaning” I shall respond with “Perhaps you aren’t clever enough to understand?”*

 

*This sort of answer could only harmlessly take place in my imagination.
