Four Words to Make Your Next Practice Session More Focused

Andrew Hitz

"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.

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.
