Depth and Breadth

One can listen to a lot of different genres yet not have an understanding of any.

One can listen to one genre exclusively yet not have an understanding of any other music.

One can perform a lot but have no understanding of what he’s doing.

One can understand what she’s playing but have trouble performing.

As a pair, depth and breadth always need to be kept in check as a musician. As we work on one we need to tend to the other and vice versa. It’s a constant balancing act but one that is totally worth it.
