If someone has already posted this, appologies. I dont recall ever seeing it before and thought it was cool. Nothing like getting from the masters themselves. Several videos on their opinions of what matters.
"Please play some wrong notes, so that we know that you are human" - said to Jascha Heifetz.
Awesome post. I watched them all twice and took notes.
Bought the Galamian book - assumed it would be over my head... instead found a tremendous amount of hope in Pearlman's preface to the book: "He [Galamian] applied that system to all of his students, and it worked, no matter how much or how little talent the student had".
Besides being an amazing artist, could he be more awesomely real or down to earth?!
BTW, I like the book so far. In early days focusing on the section on using a "frame" and finger angles for intonation. Just three days doing - already seeing big improvement.
Thanks for the post - and the reminder. There's great stuff in these videos - worth rewatching from time to time!!
Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art. Charlie Parker
