As my instructor always said, "I can teach you form and technique, but you'll have to develop style on your own." Sage words. They also apply to writing, painting, and every other art form. Style comes from patient observation, courageous exploration, and self-realization. Its intrepid birthplace lies beyond the safety of the classroom."I'd asked that question a million times "How do you teach someone to play with good taste/musicality?"
Who better to take advice from, but the late, great Chick Corea
Cant remember who told me this, I was very young, maybe my grandma. She was full of wise old quips. Anyhow, "It's harder to listen than it is to talk. This is why you have 2 ears and 1 mouth."
This applies to music as well. Only in the musical instance, the drums are your mouth.
