I use two core ideas for teaching someone how to play a musical instrument…training beyond & limits/exhaustion. This is whether we are actively using the following language & ideas in actual sessions, or not.
Training & Jamming
We are building a music practice based on focused training & jamming. We repeat the train/jam practice cycle until they merge into a unified experience.
A Tone Alone
A Tone Alone is an experiment playing with only one tone, including fretted tones and harmonics. Make music with a single tone! This is a session in the CASi system (Chords, Arpeggios, Scales, integrated).
