Story-telling & evolution.

Saturday, February 29, 2020 by Becky Reesor | DocuVlog

Telling stories is central to human self-expression. The art of storytelling is an incredible influence in societies around the world; in their politics, religions and arts. Music therapy is a discipline that has, among many other things, recognised the power of helping people to express themselves: to tell their stories. Mr. Gilles Tamboa Perrault, instrument inventor/maker at Tamböa, has taken inspiration from the great story-telling cultures around the world. He has furthered the evolution of these instruments, sprouting new life and legacy into contemporary society.

"HOW TO PRACTICE" is a life-long pursuit. Even professional pianists want to always accomplish more in a shorter amount of time. Whatever your skill level, define the purpose of your practice at each moment. In this video I explain to a student how to split their practice into "analysis" versus "rehearsal" modes. This way they will learn to both fix mistakes and be more confident in delivering a performance without stutters and hiccups.
