Choosing quality over quantity has ruled the day again!
Thank you for your patience and for allowing me the extra time to ponder on the subject of technical listening. I am very excited to share the ideas that I have come up with based off of past experiences from guests on the show and from my own creative experience. Here is the cheat sheet for this episode of the ponder series:
Technical Listening Definition:
A way of analyzing your inspirator’s (influence’s) music to allow you to identify emotional and physical similarities in their playing or singing style to help improve your musical abilities.
