"HOW TO PLAY THE BEST MUSIC POSSIBLE"
Can music be good or bad?
If so, how do we make it good?
Is there a difference between the subjective and objective?
How does music history effect the present?
How does the socio-political relate to the aesthetic?
What are toxic aesthetics?
How do you relate to other players?
How do you relate to audience?

In this workshop, we will play the best music possible.
