Music #BlogFlash2013

She listened intently as he played the song over and over again. Something was off but she couldn't put her finger on what it was. Every note was played in perfect time. The piano had recently been tuned and the sound should have been warm and inviting.

When she opened her eyes and watched the performance, she quickly identified the flaw. His fingers flew over the keys with technical precision but there was no emotion present. There was no love for the music. In fact, she couldn't even tell if he was hearing what he played or if he simply followed the sheet music as a set of instructions.

  1. That is so true you have to "feel" the music and put your heart and emotions in it!

  2. I wish I'd had a natural music ear. I was always that formulaic player because it took so much of my attention to play it correctly. There were only a few pieces I learned well enough to play with emotion.

  3. Love this, Angela. Technical gift can be taught but real emotion and passion for something cannot.

  4. This is brilliant, Angela! I love that that was the missing link!


I love hearing from you! Please share your thoughts with me :-)
