How to Listen to Music with Your Whole Body: Evelyn Glennie

Evelyn Glennie is a world-class percussionist, and has been deaf since she was 12 (not completely, but almost). This video contains some very profound truths about listening to music and to each other, and on how to be a better musician. This also shows where so much of the beauty lies in new music. Enjoy!

Here is a link to her short bio on her website (CLICK HERE) and her Wikipedia article (CLICK HERE).

Hi! It was so great to see you on my blog, Eric! I hope all is going well with you.

As for your blog post, all I can say is "Wow"! Ms. Glennie certainly proves that experiencing music can completely transcend passively hearing with our ears. I also liked how you mentioned it can change the way we think about listening to each other. There is so much truth to that.
