Music as a language: something that seems so topical, as daily view. Paradoxically many of us have studied in higher conservatories thousand and one complementary subjects, three thousand pieces for the instrument, and it is that barely know how the! language of music! But is it possible, knowing Sol-FA? In the conservatories we study how the language of music is structured: study the rules and techniques that support the language of music, from a syntactical point of view. The best comparison that comes to mind is the latin: almost all have had to study us declines, adverbs, and the words Latino, and without embargo… None knew never to speak latin! It is true that we know the music… we know what is an eighth note, we know interpret music in our instrument… but we know making music? Do you think really that the musical vision of a composer in interpreting a piece is the same as that of an interpreter, by very good technique that the aforesaid interpreter possess? Is worth citing that anecdote in which, after brand new Beethoven composition, a musician turned him and said something to him as well: do teacher, don’t you know musical errors? does Harmony) which has committed? To which Beethoven replied: I am music. Paco de Lucia, Louis Armstrong… they probably will never come to have the amount of titles we music graduates possess, however they are music, like Rachmaninoff, Mozart or Beethoven.

Any cantaor Flamenco can be more musician than a top Professor’s instrument. All these statements lead us to the key question: what then, used conservatories currently? We could wander and would arrive at conclusions as aberrant as consider music an infused science art, an art of dark, as if it were a thing of magicians. Currently need one be magician to take account of what the music actually, assuming possessing a superior official Conservatory studies.
