Just Feel the Music

Here's a video of my favorite living conductor, Gustavo Dudamel. He's conducting the Venezuela Youth Symphony, from where he stemmed! This is s fun piece that these musicians clearly enjoy playing. To truly enjoy a piece the way these guys so, it takes really knowing your music. It takes an of understanding how your part fits in the grand scheme of things. The fact is, when we make music, we are painting a picture. The amount of color, the types of shapes that we form in our heads are what we ultimately try to achieve on our instrument. By immersing yourself in the music you are working with, you're doing yourself the favor of ultimately enjoying your performances. For now, enjoy this link!
