Music As A Language

Learning Music With Victor Wooten

I saw this last week and I just kept agreeing to everything Victor Wooten was saying. The two ideas that I really like are:

1. Music as a language.
I’ve always taught with the idea that music is a language. Even in practical teaching situations such as soloing on guitar, I tell my students to tell a story with the notes they play. Every musical phrase is a sentence. Put them together and you got a story. We are learning all of this so that we can tell our story. We can express ourselves.

2. Music should not be an end to itself, it is a powerful tool that can make the world better.

Watch for yourself and be inspired a little.
