Bill Evans on learning, self-teaching and the creative process…

“It’s better to do something that’s simple and real –  something you can build on because you know what you’re doing…”  ~ Bill Evans

A fellow aikido teacher (and musician) sent me this wonderful video clip of Bill Evans being interviewed at the piano. It was posted on the site of Edward Yu, author of the excellent book “The Art of Slowing Down”

Here Evans talks about the creative process, learning and the importance of enjoying the “step by step” learning procedure. He demonstrates on the piano.

Brief, delightful, rich!
