The Art of Doing Nothing - Practicing with passion, precision and patience

For a healthy, joyful and efficient way of practising "The Art of Doing Nothing" may be understood in several ways:

- as a reference to Bach's keyboard playing, described by Forkel, his first biographer, in 1802. Evidently, Bach achieved a maximum of expression with a minimum of movements.
- as a metaphor for a calm, concentrated state of mind that enables a healthy, joyful and efficient way of practising
- as a way of submitting the ego and transmitting music from a supernatural source. The performer may then feel the support of an invisible force.
