Practicing as massage

Practicing the piano, at its best and most intuitive, is like massaging the music out of the score, the piano, the hands. Broad initial strokes uncover places of physical and musical discomfort, which are then coaxed, with a variety of techniques, into release. When all goes well, the body and mind are left refreshed and reenergized.

…at least this is how it feels to me.
