Music is Hard 1: Listening

Hey, what’s this thing doing in the SoundNotion feed? It’s a new podcast from SoundNotion.tv. You read that right. We’re a podcast network now. Here’s the very first episode of our new audio-only show, Music is Hard. This new show is hosted by saxophonist Tim Rosenberg and composer (and SoundNotion co-host) David MacDonald. Each week, we sit down to chat about how hard it is to make this music stuff happen.

This week:
Listening. How much do you listen? How does it help you to become a better musician? What do you listen for? What do you listen to?
