After she played a sonatina for me (all very fast and forte), I asked her what she wanted her listeners to feel when she finished her piece. Her response, "I want them to think I did a good job and be happy with what I played." OH, WOW!! Did that answer any question as to why she played it the way she did? I proceeded to ask her questions about the musical concepts and communicating them with emotion. We landed on the concept of playing pieces in "color." She loved it, latched onto it and I saw this eager enthusiasm radiating from her face. Aah! What a rewarding moment! Coleen Adent
Thank you so much for sharing your workshop on curiosity. That subject was really fascinating to me. I enjoyed asking questions all afternoon, and throughout this evening. It is fun to see the students faces light up when it is something they are not expecting. I am so grateful you were able to reschedule with us.

I saw an interview of Larry King a week ago, and he spoke about how passionately curious he was about the person he was interviewing each day.
I was talking to a very special trial lawyer, today, about Larry King. He reminded me that he modeled his voir dire after Larry King and Charlie Rose. Charlie Rose, he said, told an audience that when doing an interview he was totally focused and curious about the person interviewed. This lawyer also told me that by being curious about another person you pay that person a high personal compliment.
So, thank you for teaching curiosity in voir dire—it’s a wonderful trial and life skill.
