Why Be Musical? You Be the Judge!

Okay, gang, I have for you here a great little study on musicality and it’s importance.

The following performances are done to the same piece of music. Both performances are amazing and demonstrate some crazy stuff. Surely, you’ll be impressed with both of them.

But……..your knowledge of musicality will probably lead you to LOVE one performance and RESPECT the other.

This study will drive home the concept that simpler content done MUSICALLY increases the VALUE of the overall performance. Right? When does amazing content upstage musicality? Should it ever?

So, after watching both performances, who wins???

I encourage some great dialog on this viewing!! Let’s hear from YOU!
