Music Dual Carriageway (Academic and Social Music) - Sharon Bill Music Matters Vlog

We often get ‘stuck on the tracks’ in our music routine, but sometimes it’s good to ‘switch lanes’ and play in a different way. There’s great benefit in playing with an academic approach - it gives us many skills. However, sometimes it’s good to just chill and knock out a jolly tune, in a more social sense. In this way we can learn to be more flexible with the music we play, and develop our sense of pitch and rhythm. If we tend to play in a more social approach sometimes it would greatly improve our performance if, once in a while, we deviate from our normal routine and dig into some technical studies. Then, when we return to our favourite genre, we have more to give to our musical interpretation. Dare to switch lanes!
