The relationship between a musician and his first instrument has a special significance, like that of a first love. However, so often that love is lost because of the demands of training and rigors of the profession. And even if the musician goes on to have a career on a different instrument, underneath he still yearns for that first love. When working with a musician, therefore, it is crucially important to reconcile him with his first-love instrument. Combining three short talks, this presentation offers powerful case histories from Dr. Diamond’s experience and examples from the lives of famous musicians.
