Happiness Is Simplicity

Andrew Hitz

"Misery is complexity. Happiness is simplicity."
-Lester Levenson

The above quote reminds me of one of my favorite Joe Alessi quotes:

"To play a brass instrument well is an incredibly simple process.  To play a brass instrument poorly is an incredibly complex process."
-Joe Alessi

Even if you are successfully playing something, is it possible to do so with less effort or with a streamlined approach? With this approach, even the best performers and band directors can always improve what they are doing.

How can you make what you are doing more simple?
