by heart

I tell my piano students to learn their repertoire by heart. What I mean is that they should memorize their music. that the music should go into their body, because under the stress of performance, we rely on the body to take over when one thinks too much, everything gets wrecked. The blue colours from our Exuma visit are held in my heart.

ooh! i'm mesmerized by all your beautiful blues!

i played the piano for over 6 years and find this to be so true. my best performances were when i felt the music in my bones... streaming outwards.

Spectacular! Blues of all shades are my absolute favourite.

By the way, I was looking for a piano teacher on the Island!!! Well, Little One is still very young, but when she's a bit older...
