I joined NDC today

Patricio Villarejo's picture

Fighting with my country's perennial problems with banks, money, credit cards and all that stuff at last I could join!!!
I always follow NDC adventures by the web, but never could go or join.
Now not only I can, I want with all my soul to participate in next festival available as a performer, I really want to show my weir music in the natural place to do so, The NDC Festival.
I am looking forward too to receive some issues of the newsletter to, I have all free numbers I received in my collection.
My regards to all fellow cellists and musicians, and hope to be in the festival...

I wantred to write this in praise of Victor Sazer's book, "New Directions in Cello Playing".  Very simply put, there are techniques that flat out work when it comes to playing in a tension free manner.  I am in the process of putting these principles into practice so I am in a state of "re-tooling"  My understanding is that Tiger Woods (probably not a great example) went to his old golf coach and totally re-learned his swing.  The result was much to his advantage!
