Re: developing musicians and a musical culture


One of my teachers once told me that there is a certain point you reach
early on in your development as a musician when you pass a threshold of
knowledge that you can longer be one of those guys who just ignores
everything and is genius by not knowing that he/she is breaking rules.  
you know a certain amount there is no forgetting it, and your only option 
now to learn *everything* and get back around to genius-ness from the other

I little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.
