What jazz can teach us about life

  • Sometimes its simple, sometimes its complicated
  • If it swings, swing it more
  • Some people are born with it, some people have to try harder
  • Ignore the key
  • Pay attention
  • Just because its complicated, doesn’t mean its good
  • Leave space for others
  • Don’t step on the rhythm
  • Study the standards but blaze your own trail
  • Play the wrong notes sometimes
  • Explore uncharted territory
  • Stay inspired
  • What do you have to say?
  • It’s all about improvisation
  • Listen and react
  • Sometimes you solo, sometimes you support
  • Find the best players
  • Listening is rewarded
  • Explore the history
  • Practice, practice, practice then forget
  • Develop your voice
  • Find your tone
  • Be around people who push you
  • Be free
