"Make the simple beautiful."
-Marty Hackleman, former horn player for the Canadian Brass, Empire Brass, and National Symphony Orchestra
The next time you are bored in your warm up, think of this four word quote from Marty Hackleman and I guarantee you it will get better.
While technical wizardry on any instrument can be quite engaging it is actually the simple or "easy" music that the best musicians in the world can make sound way better than the rest of us can.
Making the simple beautiful should be a goal that is at the forefront of your mind every time you pick up your instrument or baton.
