Expanding Your Craft

March 2, 2014

If you take voice lessons, don't be afraid to learn different styles. Youtube Paul McCartney. Notice all the "voices" he has been able to create over the years. If you're a guitar student, listen to U2 and how the guitar player has been able to make his guitar a keyboard by taking advantage of all the effect pedals out there. Jeff Healey was an amazing blind rock-blues guitarist that also played a totally different style and sound of jazz. Our drum teacher, Hugh Petersen, is great drummer of many styles. However, his greatest talent is probably latin percussion, as he grew up in the Islands. Great pianists like Elton John & Billy Joel are really blues guys that have studied jazz and classical. That background has also helped them write better music. The point is, always be willing to expand your craft, and don't be discouraged if you don't feel like you know it all. No one does!
