We love music, we love to play music, we love to practice music.
So we are really into music, how to play it, how to listen to it, how to perform it.
How much of your time do you spend on practicing music?
You should spend all your time, practicing and playing, working on music and musicality.
This is why our focus always has to be on practicing and playing musically.
