Paul Simon On His Writing Process | The Dick Cavett Show

Paul’s haircut aside, this is such a great little snippet of an interview. I love the slowness of it.

Everything wrong in the world can best be explained that in a modern era, this would be people like Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon. Or better yet, can you imagine a Taylor Swift or a Billie Eilish referencing a Bach chorale?

If you’re in a hurry, skip to 6:00.

I remember my piano technician used to always roll his eyes and say “musicians are so weird.” I can’t help but think of that as I post this picture of dead composers’ hands... Happy Tuesday!

Like Steve Martin says in The Jerk -- "I'm somebody now!"

Henny Kupferstein, M.A.

So cool!

Participants were given a 5-finger exercise to practice. Then, a second group of participants were asked to 'think' about the practice exercise. Both groups activated the same areas of the brain. Thoughts will change how your brain works. If the piano teaching encounter is not evidence-based and to the advantage of the student's developmental need, then music education will become associated as traumatic. Likewise, a piano student who practices mentally, will still reap the benefits of their practice. This has everything to do with nonverbal autistic students with dyspraxia, who deserve a music education even if they can't prove their knowledge without hand support. Their production is not facilitated or controlled by the caregiver--but rather from their mental process. They can progress through the curriculum without playing independently. How empowering!

Yes... But it’s difficult to find as I have no sign.

Feed your kids the Arts / Raisin Brahms

Still one of my favorites —

El objetivo era comunicar a los padres la importancia que la educación artística tiene para el desarrollo de sus hijos.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: A Little Nonsense Now and Then is Relished by the Wisest Men

Words to live by

My life in a nutshell

Millennials prefer music from 20th century 'golden age' to the pop of today

I think the part of my job I secretly love the most is getting to be a personal DJ with songs my students learn. If you could drop 5 songs from the "Golden Age" on a young listener today -- what would you pick?

I had a student who peppered their playlist with Everly Brothers songs which brought me no shortage of joy. It turns out that modern music is blander and more homogenous than tunes from the olden days.

'Groundhog Day' "I'm a god" scene

Happy Groundhog Day! This film taught me everything I know about practicing and learning — I could not recommend it more to you on this most underrated holiday.

Based on this scene, how many times has Bill Murray been through this day?
