Through observing what other musicians that I admired did, I started to make some progress. All the great musicians I had the honor to work with all do at least three specific and essential things: Listen, Play, and Practice. But it’s the details in what they do that matter.This course is recommended for ALL levels and ALL instruments.THURSDAY, JULY 15pm-6pmABOUT KEVIN BALESPianist, composer & arranger Kevin Bales is a passionate educator and highly accomplished touring artist.
