How can coming out of a traumatic experience make you the best player that you’ve ever been? Enjoy this genuine, open, and real conversation with world-renowned bass player, Jeff Berlin.
This is Jeff Berlin Part 2: The Dichotomy of the Self Taught vs Academic musician. In Part 1, we talked about learning skills to play better that are not necessarily transferable over to the gig, but improves your mind and music, makes you more creative, liberates you. Why people see music as a language, but they don’t want to learn it as one. Are we as musicians sometimes paying teachers to be taught styles, and how is it different from learning musical content from a set curriculum like every other creative art form? Trust me, both parts are worth a listen.
