A Lesson from a Deaf Percussionist
Through this talk, I realized that there could be no better way to learn how to listen than listening to the talk of a deaf percussionist. Without the use of their ears, they learn how to listen to people and to music through other means.
While so many of us struggle to even give undivided attention to listen to our friends, lovers, family members, teachers without our minds wandering into God-knows-where, there are others who have been given less but can do so much more.
The first challenge of learning how to listen is to finish her 32 minute talk. It kind of gets difficult to focus as her ideas continuously and freely flow but if you listen enough you’ll get a beautiful message. Plus the mini-concert at the end will make everything worth it. 🙂
