I am reflecting on how there is something like a role for our ‘Music in Mind’ work and how we need to almost become someone else in order to successfully facilitate music-making.
Has anybody found that too?
The ‘Music in Mind’ role needs me to ground myself, physically and mentally – feel my feet on the ground, literally, and empty my mind from anything that is there at the time, thoughts, worries, self-doubt and anxiety.
It needs me to be a servant to the music that wants to happen at that moment. My body becomes the instrument and I listen intently to what is going on.
Determination and belief that something is going to happen are key, and yet I alone can’t do it without the other person or the group.
