Simeon Says…

Simeon Flick

“Practice as much as you can before age becomes a limitation. Keep learning. Try not to limit yourself stylistically; listen to any and every kind of music you can stomach. Think polyphonically. Listen in general; even if you’re playing a solo, you still have to know what key you’re in, and where the dynamics are going. Pay attention to what the other instruments are doing, let that influence you, give you ideas, connect with your fellow musicians. Have fun!”
