I don’t actually know how I ended up on the 3-D Piano e-newsletter list, but an article in the recent issue caught my attention – Imagery, Emotion, and Imagination: Cultivating vibrant performance through descriptive adjectives and metaphors. This is a concept I’ve heard before, but I’ve never tried it out to this extent with my own playing or with my students. I’m looking ahead toward fall and brainstorming ideas that I want to use with my students. This is now on my list! I think it will be a very valuable exercise for all of us!
