How to Listen to Music


in Music Technique

Here at the Music Learning Workshop we focus on music theory and not so much on technique. Our premise is that learning music theory as fast as you can allows you to focus on playing and technique. But what about the musicianship? I recently watch this video of Evelyn Glennie shows us how to listen to music. I’d love to share that with you today.

This video is is a fascinating revelation by deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie about how listening to music involves much more than simply letting sound waves hit your eardrums. The video is 32 minutes long, but well worth your time.

Scottish percussionist and composer Evelyn Glennie lost nearly all of her hearing by age 12. Rather than isolating her, it has given her a unique connection to her music. Enjoy!
