From a deaf musician… is truly inspirational!
Evelyn Glennie is a deaf musician, who teaches us how to truly listen.
Anyone who knows how to play percussion instruments (drums, marimba, vibraphone, timpani and the like) who would to hear how she listens, and how to explains how to play – as a musician, how to listen as a musician.
Simple notes, simple tunes, simple rhythms, simple beats, simple sounds… but how do you explain it to someone who cannot hear. How can you teach someone how to feel and listen, not just with the sounds, but through vibrations as well.
Evelyn explains it well in this TED talk! Must-watch for anyone trying to learn to listen, and those trying to learn to play percussion instruments like musicians 🙂
Inspirations are all around us, we just need to be able to listen 🙂
