Below are three crucial elements as it pertains to playing with a band, not just as an instrumentalist, that most of us often overlook:
- Use your head
- keep counting
- Use your heart
- feel it
- Use your ears
- listen to your band on and off the stage
I've noticed that there's a divide between the feel of music and Music Theory. I, on the contrary, don't see them divided at all. I think the two work hand-in-hand. It's only through a proper balance of theory and feel manifested through thousands of hours of practice that we begin to play to our fullest potential.
I'm not only talking about rudiments, techniques, genres, and exercises but also about ambitions, goals, ideas, and creativity. I try to convey to every single one of my students the urgency of finding what they love to do, and doing it to the best of their ability.
