Developing Your Musical Expression, Part Two – Connection, Awareness & Practice

Written by Simply Music Teacher - Laurie Richards on

musical expression
If you’re not telling a story with your playing, not conveying an emotion, you might even say it’s not music at all. Last month Simply Music Senior Teacher Laurie Richards wrote about the importance of musical expression. That article was very well received, so we’ve asked her to record for us some audio tutorials to explore her thoughts in a way you can use directly in your own development.

1. Connecting with Music as a Story


2. Being Aware of How You Sound


3. Practicing Musicianship

For your viewing convenience, the video below is the one Laurie refers to in the ‘Practicing Musicianship’ audio.
