Become The Buzzing Reed - A Response to David Thomas Clarinetist

It is with a sense of rather profound excitement that I come upon this post. Although I play the piano, all of what you have to say not only “applies” – it is at the very center of my methodology in practice.
For one year I studied techniques of practice with musicians in India, among whom were Vamanrau Deshpande and Bhimsen Joshi. I was not studying Indian music, but rather the transfer process by which the inner sourcing of the sound might be applied to Mozart and other great masters.
I believe the introduction to these basic, indeed primal, attitudes, techniques, and approaches can be offered to any student of music from day one.
Very inspiring post.
Thank you.
