I have started practicing MEDITATION FROM THAIS a couple of weeks ago...and I find it very...interesting and amusing. Even though I am able to play all the notes correctly from the beginning to the end, however, I am not getting the feeling of it. Maybe I'm a bit young for it (for i'm still in junior high) and maybe I just need to practice it more. All I know now is that it's peaceful and quiet when you meditate. You have to be one with yourself, swimming through your thoughts...until you reach the bottom and you come out. So...do I actually have to 'meditate mentally' while I'm playing? How do you make it more musical and sound more like a meditation than...something else? I'm not getting its 'feeling'...please help!
