Everyone’s always looking for the “secret“: how do I make music happen?

Making great music is a different story, but good music, to make good music? That’s a horse of a different colour.

Creating good music requires competence, concentration and – the biggest element of all?


“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,” wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Emerson has it right. I’d go one step extra and say nothing even good was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

Without enthusiasm, intent interest with emotion, we have nothing except blah, flat, hum-drum nothingness.

I think we all could do with less of that.

Enthusiasm is everything in bagpipes – in pipes – in drums – in everything.
