The Art of Conversation

A talented musician is like a great conversationalist.

They know how to talk well.

They respond to the conversation, going where it leads. They do not just go on auto-pilot until they can blab about themselves for non-stop.

Speaker or listener, they can wear both hats well and know what is needed.

And most importantly…

They know when to shut up!

I love this metaphor because it relates music to something that is so important in our daily lives. Perhaps we could get more musical with our conversation? Perhaps we could get more conversational with our music?
