Sometimes students just don’t “get” musicality, even after attempts to demonstrate and explain phrasing, dynamics, and so forth.

At my wits end with clipped, robotic playing from one student I hit on something that really worked. I wrote it down so others could use it too:

Dip It In Chocolate

In fact, it works so well that I have resolved to use it more myself!

Happy practicing,
Edward
