6 Thoughts About Your Practice

Someone had asked a question about how do you approach playing the Gongs/Bowls/Bells, especially for others. I came up with these basic thoughts:

  1. Always leave your ego at the door.
  2. Listen to your sounds more than anything else. They will always tell you what you need to know.
  3. Listen to/feel out the people you play for as they will tell you what they need.
  4. Explore your instruments and learn how to make good sounds.
  5. Study, read, listen, learn, repeat. It's a lifelong process and you will never know it all, but keep learning and improving.
  6. Stay humble.
