"Any mozart. Beethoven you know. What was it like for you. I think for beethoven it was i think i compose on the level but more along the lines of process of a beethoven. 'cause i think i would rework things rework things and then they turned into something else whereas you've probably never heard of fat jones but to me. It was one of the greatest jazz big band. Right is the twentieth century. Definitely on anybody's level. Do gallon campus. Whatever and he would write scores and he would do the parts without hearing them. You know i could do that too. But i mean what his draft was was. It and i'm told that that's the way mozart was whereas beethoven would rework things in rework things and then they'd morph into what he wants but they. They had that depth because they had that polish and evidently mozart which just do it guy sad. Do the saxes.

"Change anything you know. The moment always has a slight in it. It only gets clouded up. When you start mixing by self will the past the future. I one thing you mentioned over the past year you spend a lot of time especially in the morning reading any new books. You've come across just thoroughly enjoyed even ones you went back to well another gift for the last year. And a half as i met somebody who i was really into the course of miracles. And that's supposedly jesus riding through somebody who has an atheist and a therapist correcting all the horrible. And i think the greatest tragedies on earth have been the mystery of the bible and perhaps the karan if if any islamic terrorists see that in the koran there's misreading as much as christian fundamentalists are misreading. Hear anybody that thinks sake should have domain over. Anyone else's behavior obviously is misreading and so that premise of this book with one. Believe it or not that jesus came back and gave this course like three hundred three hundred sixty five lessons for three hundred sixty five days but also many pages of preface and afterwards and he's basically correcting all the misunderstandings and given what i believe. It's the truth. I believe before. I saw that i liked. About course miracles. It doesn't feel like i'm also a yoga guru but there's a lot of fast to that. There are certain holidays different deities. There's a lot to embrace Certain chance certain practices mantras. It's all great but it's all meant to take you but that same place. I think i was just ready in life or something. Just hit me every day. And they had a mother. The man the thing you're saying it's illusion just saving. Have a moment where you really see who you are. What is and. I've been going for those moments in the last year and a half and they expand. I like just being one thing okay. I'm looking around. All i just be here. You don't be here now. This is not new stuff. But i once you decide. That's more important than anything else. You're doing which. I had the luxury of doing without having to travel bad. Having to show up to gigs out. You know all i had to do is oh. I'm not here now. No wonder. I'm i'm feeling that way again and breathe into it and i found my own personal exercise and then i found that this was also the best exercise for my class of it. All just kind of happens by you know. There's a great buddhist. Saying which i. I'm not a buddhist but i'm not anything but i I quoted in the book. It says do nothing and nothing should be left undone. That's really worth contemplating. 'cause it's the face value of it seems impossible. That's how you know there's a depth there that you can concentrate on and that's the idea is something afoot and i can play a part in it in other words. I have another analogy for me as i have very short life. I'm separate drop on the kitchen table. Probably a few seconds from a drop in the ocean live forever so that may all be classic buddhism but it would take me one step away from it to think of. It is buddhism. It just me and it's just commonsense. It's beautiful can have you. Have you could do this with anyone. Dead or alive sit down. Long-form conversation Who'd you love to have that conversation with.

"Was teaching and you had to wear masks the whole time. I have not. I've yet next week starting next week. I'll find that's like what i had yet to teach with a mask on. 'cause i've been teaching for a year and a half on zoom and i kept like gasping for air. You know really. And i kept ripping the hell with it. You know fi. Di di i i. I just then i put on again. You know so. I'm in this one place where somebody was doing a master class. I was supposed to go on right after her and again i got the mass comm it. I'm just like so ty walkout it gets american back in. i'm almost. I'm almost fainting sitting there waiting for her to be done and i kind of fell asleep which was great and i wake up stick plotting. The person looks at me and goes you know now now you not even take a break and i walked up there honestly like dredged up like i had my bedroom slippers on something and i. I just been talking for hours. So i just didn't feel like talking. I sat down piano. And i put my hand on the piano and they started to play where i was at and they built a piece. That was about fifteen minutes long where they were doing. This phenomenal stuff. And i was still sitting there watching and just resting because i was tired and breathing and then i did a little talking. That was it but it was amazing to see when i finally give up what the body will do the music and then i was kinda getting the enjoyment of what i was hearing. You know i saw. That is a documentary on right now. Gold summer of seoul. Have you seen it. I have not now. He has a lot of noise about a lot of publicity basically.

"And it won't be intuitive now. That's the same thing with golf or anything okay. Now you've learned how to do something. Now get out of the way and let the body learn to do it with such regularity that it's relatively easy for you to do that makes you. Above the competitor at one point the dipping one level and another is just the ease of doing it because everybody knows the same thing at a certain level. So what else explains it and yet learn to play. Something with ease is never mentioned once also the assignment of way too much material which just ensures that almost everyone. The most talented of us will only semi learn everything just enough to know. They're not doing it right and develop a negative thing about themselves. I practiced by you. Don't get better. i guess. I'm not very talented. Which they have to submerge because whenever they think that they're in pain so they submerge it with what it could be alcohol. It could be partying. It could be rationale a lot of people living in a sort of purgatory because music has been nothing. But am i doing it. Well oh now. I didn't do well on doing it. Well they missed the entire gift of music. I'd rather play badly and constantly be aware of the gift that it is just a play. Then play okay and be constantly on this balancing myself like humpty dumpty trying not to fall off the wall and feel and crack you know that's just one of many. Don't get me started..

"To practice the debt. I've never done that. But but i did find myself able to look at some things in practicing with a clarity. I wasn't coming from that part of my brain. That right couldn't scratch me and it. I just had to get up. Get off the piano bench. I couldn't stay there. Unless i was performing and i could do that all day but by myself it was a loneliness and just not wanting to do it. So the next seven or eight years just practicing. And then i would make some progress. And then i would sort of lose it and i go back to that exercise again. So it's which is why recommend to people now when you don't know where you're at start over you keep watering the route. That's how you make a plant grow or a new neurological direction. Which is a highway in the senate now but So after about seven years people were remarking to me. You don't look like you're doing anything. What's going on you know and so i started a few private lessons because people wanna know i was doing and i then i started with this exercise but also my intuition took over as there's someone else teaching and they knew what to say and they knew what to do and that grew and then i did cl- that's a long story but i did a class at the new school and everybody kind of flipped out so they had me subbing people all the time that i started teaching there and from there i did. A couple of lectures and electra became Somebody recorded they send it to band directors country. People are starting to quote me in my what. I said which is very strange for a musician. Who only really cares about what he plays. And eventually there was enough material in my lectures to write a book and from that point on it Took another level completely.

"Blue and song of a seagull her. I think that first records. I inserted before she got jazzy. Those entire records are my favorite music and she redid one of her songs you know. She did a song in the beginning of her career. Cold both sides now and it sounds like a folk singer moon vendues and various wheels but she had the distinct privilege of doing it again. I mean she's still alive. But as an older woman with the metropole orchestra and check that out joni mitchell with the metropole orchestra singing both sides now part of his heart sounds like she's been on both sides now. But the arrangement done by vince. Mendoza is so mystical is probably my favorite arrangement of all time and the very simple away. But it's so mythical and these things i'm telling you there are very few things if i put them on. Whatever i whatever. Clouds are over my head disappear. And i melt into the music but there aren't many pieces like that even music i find myself thinking and not really just joining the has to grab mia sir way and it doesn't mean they grab anyone else that way speaking of grabbing you a certain way i'm wondering of different teachers I i know you've written about And please correct me. If i can hear the pronunciation wrong madam. Shell off An early teacher of years. I'm i'm just wondering about some of these. These people come into your life and just kind of had that that that grip on you. That that fundamentally changed you. I think that's why i was meant to do this. I am at the boston shola. That's all said writes. The madame part is kind of a spiritual piano teacher I it was almost like if you resented the artery learned to play. One note with her was like this guy learning to release about release of a narrow and it taught me so much. I don't even know if i got the right thing. But it taught me to be in this space and also the spirit relationship between where my mind and body is at and when i drop a finger on a key but then the next teacher ahead was in brazil. Join on a cease. Brazil was his name and he had come at it from a different way. He had been a classical pianist practicing eight hours a day. It joined the. He had been in competitions. I believe he had won competitions and he had a nervous breakdown had to start all over again with an exercise like hers but it was all five fingers..

"I think you're as great as the records. Everybody does no you know i could get on that. I could start to focus on that cloud but again it's a cloud because whatever is happening is what's happening. I could get on a negative thing but mostly my biggest negatives were being able to be happy not being anxious not being depressed. Not being jealous of somebody not wanting to escape. Oh man i think when. I was a kid before ten years old. You know my parents babysit. We're talking about the fifties parents babysit the sat there kiss with television. What a great aid for them. Suddenly if you put the kid in front of the television would just sit there like a like a not a robot but you know i just yeah and then they were quiet. The problem is that becomes the meditation for a child. But it's not tuning in. It's actually detaching an tuning out and becoming known and then you get addicted that numbness. And i think that numb. This is what i've been fighting all my life. I wanted to feel what a human being could field and literally. That's been an entire life thing that helped me back. Didn't help me back from music actually helped me music. I could play something and everybody in the room was crying but me and i went. Wow geez okay. I'm looking around okay. He my wife would come back. I said no. I don't know what what i just did you know. Just it's very strange. It doesn't go along lines. I recommend anybody else. But i could be not even involved and the effect of the music. I don't know why it's like that but it has been that way but in my life i wanted more any to answer. Your question has nothing to do with music It was. It was great music when i was completely messed up and But it could have been greater and i could written more of it or whatever i think it is even greater now that my life has come into agreement with it but now.

"So my new book is called becoming the instrument. It means it's goes beyond being a player. Become the instrument to play the instrument then learned that teach that instrument allow that as mental learn the most efficient way of playing the instrument and that raises your technique a level above anything. You could have done with effort. So effortless mastery is like using a fork your precise every time you may think nothing of that but there's only i don't think there's any of the species in the world that's even capable of it. If they are it takes a lot of concentration. That's effortless mastery. You could be doing five things and you still never miss your mouth. You want every actor doing sports or music to be as close to that as possible. Who is for.

"In the fifties. And then he was on shows. He was the harmonica player on sesame street harmonica player on midnight. Cowboy you know some of the most iconic harmonica things with him but it was also a jazz great and a brazilian mastering those belgium. So they're doing big stuff next year. And i'm writing this orchestral music to be played next year but for the first time i decided to start basically a year early so that wasn't just writing the fulfil deadline. I wanted to see if i could keep the son in a actually. This was my concept if Roaming around the different dimension. Now what is music sound like there. And would i have the chops to orchestrate something to make it feel like that and i brought in somebody. That's been helping me on the orchestration side. So here's here's how i compose. i start writing without questioning. If it's any good and then when i lose that easy flow to keep writing. I shut the computer down. I ride on computer. Because i left and i have terrible handwriting and it's just hard to write music. You have to keep your wrist up because you're moving to the right so soon as it feels like it's important that there's a right way in a wrong way. I shut it down. Leave when i come back. It's obvious what i should do next. So then i do that. And i keep going and then sometimes it just goes and goes and then you get to a point where in the middle of the process. It shows me what it was. I'm doing so now. I'm going to go back retroactively and make it look like. That's what i was always going to do. So it's very much effortless masters composing. I let things compose themselves. Say the big fear with doing anything is that you'll do it badly. That's the only thing that makes drama out of trying to do things whether it's sports or music trying to do it. Right creates drama. That's been superimposed. A cloud in front of the sun.

"What's in my mind. That's causing this. Because you know the moment does doesn't have that. This moment is remarkably. It's i called the space. 'cause there's plenty of space between you and the clouds i look at you and me the analogy like the best is we are like the sun. We have a light. We have a power. We have a heat. We have a brightness that never changes but we feel differently every day The analogy would be clouds so there are some days where at three o'clock in the afternoon. It looks like it's almost nighttime. But you would never say. Wow the sun is so weak today it has no power. It has no light. Your knowledge of outer nature assures you that the sun is just as brilliant just as lit just as powerful as ever but clouds. That's why surgery analogy there temporary and they block something that never changes so more and more. I just kept thinking about one thing. I just kept thinking about that no matter how i feel. I'm simultaneously aware that. I'm the same light with the same love and inspiration that i ever had but i'm blocked by some temporary clouds and then i would. Just if i went back into the space i would feel a sun peeked through immediately. That doesn't mean the clouds wouldn't come back and in fact another trick i found. Don't try to block the clouds. Don't try not to feel certain way. It's just exactly what it wants to pull you in so for twenty seconds i am the light now. I'm ready to go back to my problems willingly. I might find ways you go. What happened is sometimes that stays or it's so much lighter than it was before i took that break so for people who have been trying to reprogram themselves for years. There's a couple of things. I discovered through the gift of teaching one. You watch your breath. Don't think of it as particularly meaningful gesture if you turn on your engine in the open. The lid the car and you your engine. You wouldn't think oh my god. This is so profound. Well there's a little motor in there. That sucks in and pushes out a pump. Or whatever you just gonna watch yourself. Breathe and i like this phrase. You've been doing it all your life. I've always been breathing. So i don't need a breathing exercise. I'm a virtuoso. I breathe through every mood and every good news and bad news and tragedy and new relationships. I was breathing. But i'm just gonna watch brief. Watch it breath for like twenty seconds. Whatever so make it. Short makes a portable. Keep it from being meaningful. It just watching. It turns out that if you're just watching so breathe all the clouds disappear. The light shines on you in that moment because that's actually all we are and everything else is as they say in the vague is or the mahabharata or the ogden makita play. It's all a play. So if you keep working one thing this your weight shifts the weight of your attention shifts. More and more in that way and the difference between having that philosophy and actually manifesting is having an exercise without an exercise. Philosophy remains philosophy and you remain unable to You know a do that philosophy simulated but if there's an exercise that embodies the change then you gradually become what you may have..

"Bring people into. It is very simple with a breathing exercise. That's very easy and very short. What i realized about breathing exercises is that people's egos have time to overcome it right okay. I'm just breathing. i'm beginning to think. Let me just keep breathing not breathing. And the egos always smarter than i am. So it's sorted takes over. So i'll just watch myself breathes for twenty seconds so like even right now go then and actually if all you did was watch yourself. Brave other words not think breathing a spiritual thing or at least a something but literally. There's a little pump in there or whatever they call it and you just watching. That machine worked for twenty seconds. That is what. I call the space in the book. Space when you work in the space. You're always ready to have a great performance because you're not going to reach out to sabotage it ironically. You don't think you're sabotaging you think you're to keep it going but the action of getting in the way and keeping going as what breaks it. It's like you're sitting on the side of a stream on the rocks and you think you can keep this dream going by getting into the stream and paddling. all you're doing is getting in the way the stream missouri. If you imagine a stream that's always happening that your job is to witness it that keeps it flowing and then you have to teach your body to be part of that stream so at all sets up that way. There are a lot of things that that kind of. Teach a similar thing. But i came into that organically step after step especially From the evolution of teaching. Do you remember the first time you enter that space. Well see. that's the weird thing. Why i can explain it and why i could come up with exercises for people is even more weird. Because i never really had that problem. I felt so inadequate now. I'm one of those people. Like judy garland or a person that was always in pain unless they were performing. So no one ever had to tell me to like edit out because i was really ready to and don't let an artist ever tell you that's like that that they don't feed off of how everybody's you know blown away or the is opening the ear you know. Of course we are at that moment. we feel valid..

"One is they've had well of course. I was always talking to musicians. That one or two gigs where it was all happening and when it was all happening they almost were watching themselves play. They had that separation now. That's an ancient principle from from from india that the vega's even The witness they call it the witness consciousness when you are the witness consciousness you watch the physical person or the body perform or you watch a situation you watch. The sadness doesn't mean you don't experience the sadness but that part of you that witnesses it is already kind of risen above it and the more you practice witness consciousness the more consistent the thing. You're witching watching tends to be so everybody's had that experience where for whatever reason they didn't care and it was the best gig of their life. They've also had this experience. The next gig was terrible because they were more interested in that result. Then what got them there. If if not caring at least in a strategic way not obsessing about their performance made them play better than logic would dictate work on not being attached to the performance though but let the body perform. That's a very much of a sports thing. You program the body but the mind is best left out of it. That's what creates those super moments. So but once someone's had that result they're thinking about the result the next time they're more concerned about having that result again and of course it goes worse than ever and then they can never choose to have that experience and they can never show it to anyone else and that sets up the the appetite for effortless mastery evidence. Mastery is the study of having that experience more consistently and eventually that just being your experience and you don't even react to it and the way it is is by touching the instrument or doing the action without attachment learning to do it from the body or.

"That that i had to work at it you bring up existed because of my relationship to music that was well you bring up one of the beautiful things as well. And that's around teaching by teaching. We absorb we learned those lessons so much more than than even the student that that's the beauty in that you mentioned reading some some ancient wisdom so you could see for thousands of years. Any of those books That that you still remember that had a deep impact on you. Yeah well was ancient wisdom. It wasn't an ancient book. The sufi message has Con i mean. He's i don't think he's alive anymore. But he's the twenty century man but sufism is very old reading Parts of the of the Bogdanich gita which talked. I didn't read it all but which talked about constantly. Don't get caught up in what you're doing. This is all a play. This is a play on the physical level. And there's a whole thing going on another level and You know anything then. I when i was kind of any sober in the eighties. I started reading a louise hay and You know creative. Visualization and things. Were you could call new age. But of course they were based on ancient principles zen in the art of archery. Which i read back in the seventies. I really was captivated by that. And so that's quoted a lot in my book how to really mass something. You have to get the mind that out of the way in order to stay with process otherwise the mind talks Process before you've arrived at what you were trying to achieve you know and all that kind of came together and then i started teaching at berkeley and they were they. Now call the effortless mastery institute and suddenly what. I was teaching here and there at a day in a school here. Three days there were courses and that was about six seven seven years ago like that and that meant every week. I had the parcel that the answer in the book is the four steps. They are reprogramming steps. Not just changing your habits but really reprogramming old erotic Neurotic actually yes. Neurological patterns and just starting to create new ones. That support. What you're trying to do even if you're not trying to be the wisest person in the world but you're old patterns or what keeping mastering whatever you're trying to learn to do so in a way it's still was about music.

"Done one thing or another learn the lessons of life not music and it's just gotten better and better with some huge dips and then getting better again in many ways. This is the best time of my life. You mentioned the dibs. That's life right and we we. This linear process in. Life's not linear at all. And you think you're filling in substance and then you go off that that and that can be fourteen years fifty and then you find and you're still doing stuff you know it's very life is really complicated and my favorite movies are the ones that show all the a dichotomy in the not just hypocrisy but you know how you could be that and you could also be all this one hundred percent. Yeah it one of the things you bring up that that i love is and i think this conversation. This is going to be about life. This is going to be about music. I i have no musical background. No musical talent. That's that's my wife But i i read your book effortless mastery and it. It's centered around music but for me it was like this is one hundred percent applicable to life and i. I grew up playing sports in something that you mentioned a minute ago. Is your ability to articulate your town still down that that. That's one of the things i saw. You might have the most talented people in the entire world. They have no idea how they do it on. That's one of the things i appreciate. So much about. You is the creative elements that make up some of these things. I'm wondering for you. Is that just a talent. You always had that you were able to still in articulate this or was this for you. It was a talented. I always had. I never worked very hard for anything until i learned to work for things later way later. You know healing period the mid thirties on. I learned how to intentionally work on something but all the quote unquote wisdom. That came to me. It just seemed like it was just arrive in fact the is the end of a process not the beginning of process. I started teaching things. Were coming out of my mouth. Those things were blowing people away. And i knew that part of me wanted that to happen but the wisdom would just come. When i wrote the book i actually went back to. I mean it's not like i never read a few books. That were very important to me because they agreed with what. I already organically new not. I didn't like them because they agreed with me. I like them because they were ancient.

I wasn't particularly talented..
