    #21. Stop - Prepare -Go

    #21. Stop - Prepare -Go

    One of the greatest ways to practice  "tricky" bits is to stop JUST BEFORE them. 

    When you learn /practice  a  piece , Instead of playing the  whole piece  s l o w l y , analyse (with the help of your teacher, if needed) where the "tricky" bits are.   (it's usually the place  where  you usually  get stuck or make mistakes).

    Draw a dotted line in the score.  When you play stop ( or freeze) where the line is,  prepare in your head and go. 

    Soon  you'll realise that the  stop  doesn't happen any more. Congratulate yourself. You've mastered this place.

    #20. "Where to get a little luck..."

    My Grandfather Leo was a very gracious man.

    In this podcast I'm sharing with you some of the thoughts that came up  today, on his birthday.

    How he affected my life, and how he lives in me long after he's died. 

    "So long as we are being remembered, we remain alive"  (Carlos Ruiz Zafon).

    How would you like to be remembered?

    It's not too late. You can create the way you want to be remembered right now.

    #19. SuzukiCast - 2020, A Learning - Teaching Curve

    #19. SuzukiCast - 2020, A Learning - Teaching Curve

    What a year this has been for the teachers among us !

    We were called go much beyond the comfort zones of the teaching we had known.

    It held so MANY challenges to all of us: Suzuki Teachers,Instrumental teachers AND teachers in ALL subjects.

    We experienced losses AND gains.

    I'm inviting you to count them with me in this episode.

    In general we have become a smaller village and  got closer to each other, exchanging ideas, connecting and developing together alongside with parents and students.

    What can we take from this experience as we go on to 2021?

    I suggest that Instead of “new years resolution” that works on targets and goals, we breath deeper and slower.

    We look at what we have and add a dash of presence to it.

    As you nurture yourself your students will be nurtured too.

    #18. The Soul of Elderhood

    #18. The Soul of Elderhood

    In the last month of 2020 we gathered around in circles ( online) to send off 2020 .

    These were circles of women, elders, teachers and parents. 

    In this episode i'm sharing with you about the Soul of Elderhood. 

    You don't become an elder by being old. You become an elder by acquiring wisdom & depth.

    The dance of life goes on from birth to death.

    Sadly, in our culture many old people dread getting old. They do everything possible to stay young, or to look young.

    Elderhood could be the time to shed  the expectations  that your tribe, family or society have planted in you.

    Becoming an elder could mean setting yourself free to be who you are or who you've  always wanted to be.

    Accepting old age comes with GRACE and NOBILITY.

    Weaving a new world requires the elders to step into their elderhood.

    #17. SuzukiCast- Changing Gears

    Parents and teachers often ask about the process of moving from childhood to adolescence in learning a musical instrument.

    The Suzuki program follows and accompanies the child from early childhood, through adolescence.It’s only natural that we need to change gears as we go along.

    At the beginning stages we encourage children, motivate them, create their appetite – for music and learning and dedicate our efforts to keep the desire alive.

    When they grow up, you hope that everything you nurtured them to do, is there.

    Your child pushes you away when they want to be independent.

    Even if you feel hurt or rejected you know that’s an important step in their upbringing.

    In being a Suzuki Parent, you’ve created a deep and close bond with your child.

    Now the time has come to enjoy the fruits:

    Everything your child learnt in at the piano or other instrument is reflected in life in general.

    The success of the learning process is a precursor to the success in other areas in your child’s life.

    The things your children have achieved in learning to play would naturally and automatically be implemented in their lives.

    Concentration, perseverance, self-discipline, sense of commitment, Sensitivity (to beauty, arts, people), stamina, ability to perform and knowing how to achieve level of mastery.

    When the parent steps back, the responsibilities do not disappear; they just change hands.

    Independence needs to be earned by the child.

    Sometimes it doesn’t go smoothly.

    Becoming independent needs to include:

    1. I can do the work by myself. 2. I’m WILLING to do the work by myself.

    In this episode we go through the points that these processes require, and what happens in a parallel process underneath it.

    All which leads to a great lesson in life!!!

    If children are not ready yet to understand it, they need to be guided and helped to develop the character for this.

    In Dr Shinichi Suzuki words: “Character first – Ability second.”

    #16. Prima Materia - New Matter

    #16. Prima Materia - New Matter

    A raw, unprepared, unfiltered conversation about experiences that create newness of being, every day of our life.

    "Dot Dot Dot"

    In the presence of mystery, we experience authenticity.

    Living in the present moment can transfer us to another place. This is not necessarily distraction, it is letting the flow explore us (or us explore the flow).

    Woody Allen once said: “if you want to make God laugh, tell him about your future plans...”

    It can be scary to live from this place, so we pretend that we can control and plan our lives. In these unprecedented times, we are invited to live from soul.

    Art, music, journaling, nature, poems, dreams – the language of soul.

    If we could start the day attending to soul (instead of watching news or social media) we’ll find connection with eternity.

Inspiring words on Creativity

I love the thoughts on the creative process. It is so important just to be able to play, not always to be “practicing.” My Dad was the one who would just sit and listen to me play, while my mother helped me practice. She missed out on something special that Dad gave me, but of course I needed both of them to do what they did for me as a child. You talk about the same parent being able to do both, and with mindful awareness, it is possible.

Nourishment

Oh. Dear Zohara. Your podcasts are my soul food. My nourishment as I dig under the surfaces (physical and psychical) that this virus has provided the time to allow. Thank you from my heart.

A Wise Contemplative Voice

I so appreciate hearing your voice Zohara, a voice of wisdom and depth in a world where, too often it seems like shallowness is celebrated as the pinnacle of being successful or indeed satisfied.
You pausing to give careful consideration of the moments that matter, invites me to pause with you.
Thank you.
