A Key Dialogue
After a performance the Musician was approached by a student with questions.
Student: What was the key of the piece you played?
Musician: The key is to be in the here and now when you play.
Student: Yes of course, but what about the key?
Musician: The key is to open your heart when you play.
Student: Yes, yes but mind you I am asking about the key?
Musician: (Smiling) The key is to quiet your mind when you play?
Student: But … but …
Musician: And to listen.
