What are the elements? Every aspect of music that is felt is elemental.
- Rhythm: There are so many levels at which rhythm is manifest that it can never be entirely routine.
- Tone relatedness: There are so many ways to relate one tone to another that, again, this defies routinization
- Touch: How many fingers you have and how you position them on the keys or on the strings makes all the difference.
- Breath: Applies to and enhances all of the above, over and beyond its direct application to singing and to winds.
