Tim Price Bloggin' For D'Addario Woodwinds- Whatever it takes!

Whatever it takes! - Everyone needs to find their own road! Step forward and be the best YOU that you can be.So, without saying I have the answers here, or any revelatory answers I try to advise all students to try to start developing a clear message in their music, remaining focused and true to that message they want to convey to provide skills that enable them to work while their true passion develops and hopefully is recognized. Lean to thrive and survive.This is what we do, for better and for worse and make it a point to...do whatever it takes. Music is the glue that holds us all together! Without music...the TV world couldn't sell a can of beer. Music is the ultimate and the most important. NOW- If you've noticed...I put a bunch of pictures of saxophonist Paul Gonsalves on this blog. Go to you tube and listen to him ok? He was one of the real amazing innovative tenor soloists in jazz...and had one of the most modern sounds ever. Being a good musician is a life-long endeavor, and I’ve committed to spending many hours of each day working on this craft. What makes one a good musician is dedication, hard work, attention to detail, and tenacity. Also-knowing your roots and who made certain things happen in the music your involved in- Paul Gonsalves is that guy to check out this week. Do it! - For the playing side, try playing the blues in Db concert. Learn a few heads and melody's to get you into this key. Db concert. Get away from the same old kets and work at playing and HEARING some new keys. Can you play the melody to Body and Soul ? Without music and doing all the chords in root position? Try that to start learning a tune that EVERYONE has to know. TILL NEXT WEEK....Eat some healthy salads, drink plenty of water and work hard at what you love...Tim Price
