Ears To Hear

Students are often very informed when it comes to music theory, I find that naturally our ears do the heavy lifting and translation between what we hear, process and play becomes the biggest obstacle. Many times we study base on a stylistic preference, which is understandable, however we don't always see that in one area of study can be bridged into another. Concepts run through out, but terms differ, the ideas consistent but not visualized, these issues can be a stumbling block when bridging the gap.

Paying close attention to the subtleties of a phrase, chordal harmony, structure, theme, etc. will incline the student to pinpoint consistent concepts that transcend musical stylings. In other words, listen. 

For all of us who pick up an instrument will forever be studying, but the greatest understanding is already built in. God has bless us with ears to hear! So rejoice, play and worship Him.
