The conversation continues with, John Steinmetz, all around musician and educator. People get involved with music because they love it, yet too often the love is not clear enough. Musicians get distracted by technical perfection, administrators get distracted by all the responsibilities, and our way of writing and talking about music is often dry. How can we as an industry, as musicians, show and share the love again before the stuffiness of protocol buries us.
