Welcome to episode 181 of the LJS Podcast where today I announce that I’m taking a break from jazz…for two weeks. But the fact that I’m taking a break does have some significance, and I want to explain the benefit of taking breaks for you and your musicianship.
Listen to episode 181So, as you can hear, I’m laying here on the beach in Greece, visiting my wife’s family, on vacation.
And there’s not going to be any intro music today. There’s not going to be a music theory lesson. There’s not going to be a practice routine that I’m going to share with you. I’m not going to be taking out my guitar. I’m not going to be doing any of those things today.
Because today is just an episode where I want to talk about taking a break. Taking a break from playing jazz, and taking a break from our everyday lives, of course.
But in specific, I want to talk today about taking a break from playing music and why you should do that. And that’s exactly what I’m doing right now, well, at least at the time you are listening to this episode.
In this episode:
1. I talk about why I’m taking a break
2. Why you should take a break from jazz too
I look forward to having you join me in the next episode!
