I’m singing in the rain…

It rained just now, at least it cools down the air. It’s been sooo hot these days.

Music…

Can you teach music like teaching handicraft? I guess you could, up to a certain point. I’m think of this cause Jane was asking my brother about how we, as worship pianists are able to play ‘flowery’ improvisation over the basic chords.

I guess that from experience, what comes first is the passion for music. We play because we simply want to play, and for no other reason. We love the piano and try our best to become better at it. So the more we practise, the more we absorb a variety of music styles from all over the more imaginative we become.

Playing improvisation doesn’t meet we are good enough to cut an album or something like that, but what counts I think is that we enjoy each note and each chord we play. The satisfaction from producing some tune or improvisation that nobody has ever thought of before is incomparable.

The skill is acquired. And it grows on you. It is a gradual progression, a development of your own personal style. Nobody can be your ‘teacher’ in that sense. We are only examples.
