The Music Part

Internalizing specific sounds is the key to the music part, that elusive goal expressed by so many adults whose childhood training led them to expect that all there was to it was the ability to churn out notes on time as accurately as possible.

When specific sounds are truly heard as such the music part of the player becomes engaged just as the mind of the scientist is engaged in tracking evidence while conducting research.  However many choices one had until that moment are now exponentially increased.  The music part thus defined is the key to what is truly compelling in music, the reason an intelligent person can without fear of boredom devote a lifetime to mastering the art.

That it is enormously difficult affirms the complexity not of musical structures, as the Muz App establishment would have you believe, but of sound and sound perception in and of themselves.
