Staying the Course

Staying the Course; as it turns out, it does take Rocket Science. Well, it takes an understanding of some of the same issues the rocket scientists go through.

You may be glad to know that during any given moonshot the space vehicle was perfectly on target about 3% of the time. The rest of the time it was adjusting, correcting, refocusing to get to it’s ultimate target.

 

 

As a musician this is so encouraging.  Are we the only people who have to keep making adjustments in our practice, our rehearsing,

our performances? No, and that is great news. When you are making adjustments and corrections, that in itself isn’t some weakness or lack of ability, it’s just what it takes to reach the target of great playing.

 

Stay the Course!

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist
