Welcome to the brand new Principles of Music Podcast. In our first episode, Bryan explores the subject of technique from a host of different perspectives, including;

  • What technique really is and the musical advantages it affords us
  • The pitfalls associated with technical practice
  • How to develop it in a way that avoids those pitfalls
  • The mindset you should foster when considering technique and technical limitations
  • plus a lot more.

We chiefly demonstrate these concepts as they relate to guitar however every instrument will be able to draw parallels to the ideas discussed here.
