Journey Posted May 5, 2001 Report Share Posted May 5, 2001 I have often thought that you could not fake your heart being in it, but I do believe that maybe you can fake it a LITTLE bit. Here is why: my teacher had asked me to play a certain piece for my recital. I do not particularly like this piece. But, while practicing, she told me that I needed to put my heart into it. After a few weeks, she was convinced that my heart was in it. I, out of all people know that most certainly it was not, but to her, it sounded like I was putting my heart into it. So, I would consider this a certain degree of 'fake heart'. There is no way that somebody could fake putting in their heart for real, but I do think that there is a certain degree of technique/ability that one can put into the piece that will deceive SOME people's ears into making them hear that it is truly from your heart. What are your thoughts on this? Just to let you know, my heart goes fully into the regular tunes that I play, but if there is a piece that I do not like, just like anyone else on here, my heart really does not go in it. Give me a tune I love, and I'll give you the music from my heart. Journ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
