  8. When you practice, start in the middle sometimes. Start in different spots, out of order. Always starting at the beginning of the piece can get you in a rut, making you less attentive. Then when you memorize the piece, you might only remember the beginning!

  9. 5 Things We Learned About Lenny Kravitz Last Night Ultra cool rocker and style icon Lenny Kravitz commanded cat calls and praise from the 92Y audience on September 19. The musician, actor, and all-around talented artist sat down with Rolling Stone’s Anthony DeCurtis to discuss his acclaimed career and new album, Strut. Here are 5 things we learned about Lenny Kravitz last night.
Kravitz wrote “Fly Away” while driving his daughter Zoë to school in Nassau.
Robert Plant cursed him out. While the two were touring together, the Led Zeppelin band member straightened out Kravitz, who was coming off an “attitude.” Kravitz grinned and said, “I got cursed out by my idol.”
Kravitz was “almost” bar mitzahed. “Because I had this afro, the yarmulke wouldn’t stay,” Kravitz joked, commenting on his bi-racial background from his African American mother and Jewish father.
He’s living his mother’s dreams. Kravitz has made many life decisions, such as establishing a home in Paris, because his mother, The Jeffersons actress Roxie Roker, never got to accomplish them herself (she died in 1995 from breast cancer). “I’m living the life she wanted to lead,” Kravitz said. “I’m doing it for both of us.”
Kravitz really loves his fans. He proved that by remaining on stage for 10 minutes after his talk concluded, signing autographs and taking pictures with the audience.
