Loving the music you play

Want to try an interesting musical experiment? Sit down at your piano or keyboard and play something you know pretty well. Now here’s the important part: LOVE the music, while you’re playing it. Let the sounds wash over you. Enjoy the feeling of your fingers on the keys, and the physicality of it all. Luxuriate in the beauty of the tone.

Whatever you do, don’t simply read this and say, “Yeah, yeah, I know what he means.” Put that thought aside and actually do it.

It may be life-changing or it may just be strange. But whatever it is, it will probably be different!
