How to Study-Practice: Before You Begin, a Meditation

Let’s adjourn the series on How to Study-Practice with a meditation in gratitude, a virtue that should permeate each and every one our study-practice sessions…

Close you eyes…

Breathe deeply…

Center yourself…

… body, mind, and spirit.

Graciously accept this precious gift:

the freedom and opportunity
to enjoy the wonderful world of music-making.

Smile.

Drop your shoulders.

Slowly exhale.

Breathe deeply.

Once you are filled with gratitude
for the privilege of making music,
you are ready to begin.
