While reading “Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World” by David Epstein, I kept returning to the idea that musicians can and should be consistently looking outside the box of TRADITIONAL MUSIC STUFF for information from other disciplines that can help them flourish as performing artists, students, teachers, and humans. It’s too easy to stay in our little practice rooms, playing the same stuff, listening to the same recordings, moving the same way, and doing the same old thing, day after day. There’s a whole world filled with deep thinkers who have things to share from their work or their life experience. What if we applied some of that stuff to music-making? What if???
