Today we’re joined by Marc Gelfo, a self-described “Neuro-symphonic Hornist” who has played French Horn in some of the top symphony orchestras and is the creator of the Modacity music practice app which helps you practice music more effectively and enjoyably.

When we first came across the Modacity music practice app, we were impressed. But quite often the research and literature around music practice seems to end up being quite divorced from the actual expressive and creative nature of music itself, so since it’s quite a scientific and sophisticated app, our first assumption was that the creator was probably quite a technical guy. In fact, we discovered that nothing could be further from the truth!

Marc’s a fascinating guy and in this conversation we talk about:

  • What an epic road trip taught him about what his French Horn could do
  • How you can start connecting with the more expressive side of music-making, even if you don’t consider yourself creative or artistic
  • The principles that can transform the effectiveness of your music practice and get you better results faster, and in a more enjoyable way.
