The Art of Practicing - Reading Together - Spontaneous Insight

Music in and of itself is a language. That language structure gives us the flow of the music.

"The nature of musical rhythm and offer simple approaches to achieving rhythmic clarity and vitality and a sense of structural coherence." (loc: 2267)

"Even in instrumental music, which does not have words, our familiarity with the language of music gives us a sense of which notes in a phrase require emphasis. As in speech, we create that emphasis by making a louder sound, or by pausing minutely before a sound, or by both of these methods." (loc: 2387)

note: I'm reading this book from through my Kindle app, so quotations are shown by the location in the Kindle document.
