(p.9) 1 Musicianship
From the Stage to the Studio

This chapter discusses the different categories of musicianship. These are the ability to perform with a variety of dynamics, articulations, and tone colors; the ability to have a well-developed sense of timing, pacing, and tempo; the ability to connect a group of notes into a single, unified shape that completes a musical idea; and the ability to respond to changes in harmonies and other compositional elements in a meaningful way. The chapter further provides expressive approaches that can help nurture the musicianship of students, one of which is musical exploration. Musical exploration opens two pathways to musical expression: they help a performer become more aware of the connection between written music and personal expression, and they reveal the possibility of many ways to play musically.

Keywords:   musicianship, dynamics, articulations, tone colors, pacing, tempo, musical exploration, musical expression
