FBSMC4, A Musical Approach to the Basics, Session 4: ENDURANCE

Here is a series of 4 videos getting into the spirit and musical approach of endurance. These videos get into the basic principles of foundational attitudes to promote and sustain endurance as part of our music making process. There will be some accompanying postings giving more insight and additional exercises to try and apply if you so choose. The intention with the additional postings is to help by giving some 'concrete' practical integration material to make greater penetration into the videos. Don't expect from any of the FBSMC videos or writings, to  get it all in one listening or reading. It is an organic process to explore and discover what it is for you. It is NOT a list of steps that just magically works by itself. It needs YOUR LIFE involved to open the door.

Dear Norman, I am new to watching your video instruction and what a great value you provide! I am a trombonist and teacher, and learned much from your presentation style and content. I had not thought about endurance to combine the mental, emotional, and physical in my approach. I am about to practice, and am looking forward to applying this. Thanks so much for this video instruction. Sincerely, Dave
