Trying Blocks the Creative Flow

Many of us try so hard to make music. What most don't realize is that trying hard won't make you a better musician. If your attitude is one of trying to come up with something, you will fail because you will never be satisfied and you will always be wanting more.

Students often wonder why their best efforts aren't good enough. I tell them that their best music will come when they aren't concerned with the outcome. This stops most dead in their tracks.

After all, aren't we supposed to be interested in what the final product will be? Yes, if you want your music to be dead and lifeless. And no, if you desire a music that is infused with that something special - the X factor that is missing from so many creations.

If you let go and let the music tell you where it wants to go, you'll find a satisfaction that is beyond compare!
