Welcome to episode 212 of the LJS Podcast where today I get behind my guitar and have an improv session. During trying times, it can be helpful to use music as an outlet to express things that you may not be able to in words or thoughts. In this episode, I perform an improvisation for you that I hope not only you will enjoy, but feel inspired to do the same.
Listen to episode 212
During times of uncertainty, music has the potential to be a healing force and to help us express our emotions, to get things out unto the table that maybe we just wouldn’t be able to do otherwise through the written word or through language.
There’s something about music and the expression through music that reaches some part of our soul that as musicians, we are very lucky and fortunate to be able to tap into.
But sometimes music and studying jazz, all the things we talked about in this podcast, can be a little stressful, too. Like you are actually diving deep into concepts and putting pressure on yourself to get better and better.
But today I want to live by example here and I just want to create freely for you and hopefully, you will do the same at the end of this episode as well.
In this episode:
1. How music can be a powerful outlet during trying times
2. I perform an improvisation session
