Under the old/ normal way, we glare, make comments about, and even sometimes threaten musicians who make mistakes. Founders following the new way understand that musicians are inherently self-critical and want to play well—and that the best music happens when they are in a safe environment that allows mistakes by encouraging the exploration of the outer limits of their capability. When the group finds and pushes that limit, they might even touch real Art (whatever that might be for them). It’s up to the founders and the leaders of ensembles to create these environments that create an expectation of reaching the limits of the group by inspiring them to their best and forgiving requisite mistakes on the road to excellence —and and to foster the safe environment that allows musicians to focus on their artistry. What kind of environment do you want to create?
