The Listening Room

These are youtube videos, and they look a little jerky, and sometimes the sound doesn't match the image you are watching. The sound is also very thin compared to hearing a great violinist in real life. Even with all these imperfections, I still think it's great that we can kind of see what these great players look like performing, and of course hear the sounds too.

“The most important thing I look for
in a musician is whether they know how to listen.”*
- Duke Ellington
