It is jazz, rather than computers, which fires my creativity..........
Why Jazz? In jazz, we deal with personal truth, as experienced in the moment, forged in the crucible of a context in which others are simultaneously striving to prove their truth. This means that simply restating "what is known" is inadequate; it can take many tries, reformulating in a theme and variation manner, to get the point across. When the point is made, the light of discovery goes on for me and the learner. It could be that the reason that I'm a jazz musician is because the art form reflects this need in my own particular spirit, more so than that my approach to teaching comes out of being a jazz musician.
