seeing wes's post reminded me i was a musican, so another post would be cool as a balance to the Political posts

anyway , this may have been covered before at varying levels, but i thought it would be great if people gave their experiences in regard to how they developed their orchestral skills, not just the discipline but also the philosophy of it, for example i have been playing with the idea that maybe restricting my self to just piano bringing everying down to black and white might actually highten my Aural imagiantion in terms of color and that the samples or color should be brought back at the end of the composition more as a validiation of how accurate i was or maybe how inacurate i was in the first place
