Homework Assignment - All Bands
While you are listening, try to hear how your part fits with the whole ensemble. Use a pencil to identify moments when your section is the focus of the music and should be heard clearly. Listen for moments where the music moves you and see if you can identify why. With any luck this will give you all the global perspective we all need. The famous Canadian hockey player Wayne Gretzky called it, "seeing the WHOLE ice."
That's it. Super simple and it will pay huge dividends.
Have a great weekend.
