The Question of how to play music - bagpiping in this instance - 2 full hours per week 3 times socially (so six steady social hours of play),
and (as kind of) as effortlessly (yay P) as Monday evenings' Open Band at St C's with SCDers in Berkeley (for me on piano)
on pipes (for both of us)
in addition to daily fun play-playing comes to mind
... time for me to get some Scottish smallpipes for Mondays a little :)
The sheet music we play, which P distributes in email on the internet helps in many ways, and is adaptable for the Scottish smallpipes with chanters in A and D.
... just calling for leadership and innovation here :)
St Cs is a beautiful space, which makes a difference, and it's great to play with dancers.
In what ways will we be able to do this virtually - in a Google + Hangout from home, for example - in generatively fun ways, especially! ... so music just flows out and as communication ?
In many ways, this is an exploration about
'Practicing - Playing a Musical Instrument' -
and I'll post this blog entry to the WUaS wiki page of this name; there's a label in this blog called 'practicing'.
How to learn to play, as well as practice, music playfully for fun?
