I was just talking to a friend of mine the other day who just started playing the flute. He’d been playing the harmonica and he started playing the Indian flute. He’s a yoga teacher and he wanted to play it at the end of Yoga sessions.
He said to me, “So I just learned one scale. I learned enough notes that I could feel free.”
I realized that is the whole dynamic of being able to connect with an instrument. What happens with an instrument is: the instrument is silent. You liberate its sound – and as a musician, an instrumentalist, the instrument expands your voice.
So YOU liberate its sound – and IT expands your voice.
It’s a beautiful partnership.
