Pathways for Living

We pianists know that self-evaluation is crucial to our progress and musical development. Pianodao articles place the process of reflection within the broader context of our journey through life.

We all have a life outside of our piano playing. It is clearly worthwhile considering the connections between our experience of life and our ongoing musical development. But where do we start?

I have found that the philosophical wisdom of Daoism (“Taoism”) and other Eastern traditions can offer fresh perspectives and an insightful approach: one which celebrates inter-connectedness in all things, rather than isolating disconnected specialisms as so often happens in Western thinking.

Articles here explore this intersection, as well as focusing on our broader lives using a range of perspectives, traditions and contemporary insights.
