Great rehearsal today!

It was great fun to hear the band and meet many of the students at today’s rehearsal.  I really enjoy the way that Dr. Fansler focuses so much of the attention of the rehearsal on the development of the musical line and where the phrase leads to.  One of the things I’m really looking forward to in Brazil is listening to their music, and exploring what makes it important to them.  We’re in the youngest country with the youngest musical heritage.  I’m fascinated by cultures that preserve their history with music, and tell stories, and have dances with a traditional musical structure.  I know that we’re going to perform great music for people who truly appreciate it, but I can’t wait to hear the wonderful music that they will also perform for us.  This is going to be a great learning experience.
