Every Piece Has Something to Offer

You will not love every piece of music we do together.

Every piece will offer something to you.

You will not identify with the point of view of every composer.

That’s not the point. Making music from many points of view is a great way to widen your worldview.

With every piece you take up, take a moment to remember that it has something unique just for you.

Don’t dismiss it. Seek out what it’s offering.

(And don’t forget that the piece you detest today might end up being your favorite in the end. There’s value in the journey.)
