United States, Heidel, Beethoven Brahms discussed on Classical Classroom


So it's very important that we do look back, and that we sort of incorporate, and I it's this very slow. It's like a. A glacier. That's what I feel like music is is this huge glacier. That's moving. We can't see it moving as imperceptible, but it's moving over hundreds and hundreds of years so for everyone who's kind of going off the beaten path, and experimenting and doing all sorts of different things than there are people who are more traditionalist, and there are people doing both. And it's kind of it's inching forward, and it might go back a little bit and then inches forward some more, but always maintaining this kind of I of the hurricane like. Center about it that has both worlds. And I think that that is really important, and it's it's important in education, especially people studying to to be in music that we do have that tradition, which I had the, you know, the only thing I wished as a student was that I did more of the other which more maybe improvisation more jazz more experimenting and kind of it took me until you know, later after school joining bang on a can where I began to embrace those ugly sounds that I was talking about or embrace mistakes. There can be a lot of anxiety and pressure on like how something should sound. I'm based on what came before. And I think new music is beautiful. And it's it's new and it hasn't been recorded. Knows how it should sound. There's this freedom. And that's how I now approach older music. Whenever I go back and play Bach or Beethoven Brahms or any of those composers. I look at it. Like, a new piece of this new way that you've learned how to be with music has shut a new new light on this very old vast off. And I think I just wish that those two things could merge sooner in life for people. I think they are. I think that colleges and universities, and even hopefully, you know elementary on up are becoming more aware of that and incorporating those things contemporary music is playing a bigger role in education, and I just want. I wanna see that happen more. And when I do visit schools or when I do or coming demonstrate or lecture. I I like to talk about that, you know, just encourage people to to get off the page, you know, and don't spend all your time in a practice room, go out and play with other. People out and talk to other people collaborate like that's what you know. You have so much time, you know, and everybody says oh enjoy it while it lasts. And you're like Heidel always be there. And then you realize you get into real life and professional life, and you don't have you have very little time. Yeah. So that's what I wish I could see more of is not only that we're doing classical music and tradition, but we're also bringing as much of the new and the experimental into that kind of really platform of in that those stages of development because that's kind of where it counts, you know, it's much harder later in life too. Teaching dog matrix. And we're back to Dr. This man, this has been so much fun. Actually. Thank you so much for taking the time to come into the same me have so much fun on your tour. I hope you enjoy the drive on the west coast. Right. What is it US one one one? Oh one. Okay. Yeah. I've never done that you'll have too much. All right, everyone.
