Tim Price Bloggin' For Rico Reeds- “Great art presupposes the alert mind of the educated listener”

“Great art presupposes the alert mind of the educated listener”.....Arnold Schoenberg "I believe what I do and do only what I believe; and woe to anybody who lays hands on my faith. Such a man I regard as an enemy, and no quarter given!" -Schoenberg on his peculiar style of music. -- -Schoenberg's music can be difficult for the first time listener - that I admit. If you give it some time, though, it begins to make much more sense, and the passion and expression written into the score begin to come out. It may not happen the first or second time you listen, but if you put forth an effort, it will happen. Let's start with - Peripetie - Arnold Schoenberg. Take a week, listen to it once a day. Watch how what YOU hear in the music develops. The music is utterly seamless,The sound is rich and full-bodied.Arnold Schoenberg has become my "go to" choice for inspiration. Urgently recommended.He wrote for the muse of music. My kinda hero. Do not forget as well...Berks Jazz Festival.Sunday, April 7 Workshop: Tim Price's Jazz in the Classroom Time: 11:00 a.m. Admission: FREE (donations accepted) The Jazz in the Classroom workshop is part of Tim Price's popular "Adventures in Jazz Series." In performance-oriented settings, Tim Price works with young artists to improve both musical awareness and technical skills. When circumstances allow, it is informative and interesting for directors and teachers to help their students prepare materials to play in a master class setting. Students and faculty benefit from both the performance itself and Tim's expansion of musical ideas along with a fresh, creative perspective. FACTS...And answers learned from the masters and real life experience on the bandstand- come by and hang, study and have fun with Tim !In the clinic forum, Tim encourages students to participate by presenting relevant subjects and compositions by the masters , asking questions and sharing musical and, sometimes, personal concerns. Tim will then respond through discussion and demonstration. Tim will also urge participating faculty and students to express their thoughts and share their experiences and feelings on matters under discussion. These ideas provide a great point of departure and inspiration for students of all ages and musical levels.
