Regular readers will know how I enjoy sharing favourite quotes from pianists, teachers, philosophers and writers here.
Now, starting from Monday 10th August 2020, a new series is coming exclusively to the Pianodao Tea Room community over on Facebook.
The Daily Dao will offer a fresh quote each morning from Monday to Friday, each accompanied by a few additional comments or questions for reflection and to stimulate discussion.
Though seemingly a small innovation, The Daily Dao will add to the overall content offered by Pianodao by providing an ongoing reflective extension to the major themes of philosophy and practice covered in articles here on the main site.
My hope is that The Daily Dao will also bring together Pianodao readers and supporters with a closer spirit of sharing a common journey.
Rather than a random selection, each week’s quote will come from a single source: a book, anthology or interview. The book of the week will be introduced in advance each Sunday.
The sources I draw on will touch on all three of major strands covered here on Pianodao:
• Pathways for Playing
• Pathways for Teaching
• Pathways for Living
Each month I will select sources pertinent to each of these, giving a balanced and varied focus to our thoughts and conversations.
Lastly, Tea Room members can if they wish volunteer a week’s quotes as a guest host, and I hope that within each month one week will be led by another community member in this way.
If you are interested in joining the Pianodao Tea Room, full details are here. It would be great to welcome more members to the Pianodao community; do come and join us!
