Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand
I apoligize Bassic. You're right. Some people simply can't memorize something no matter what attempts they've made to do it. I wasn't thinking about those people when I insisted people have to memorize something. I was thinking about the people I know who can but who don't really try because their approach is superficial. There are a lot of those. There are also a lot of "human jukeboxes" that know a lot of tunes but don't play them "with feeling". But you're right that it's really about a prepared vs. an ill-prepared performance, not about music stands at all.
