"Are You Kool" or "Is You a Fool"?


Kool people always have 2 distinct characteristics.
  1. They are Confident
  1. They are Considerate

Confidence comes from knowledge and knowledge about music comes from practice. When Kool musicians play to an audience they do 
so with confidence. Kool musicians have done enough practice so that they don’t make any bad mistakes. Kool musicians know if they do make a mistake it won’t be a disaster and most likely no-one will notice. So the more you practice, the lower your temperature will be.

Being considerate means you treat everybody with the same respect as you would wish to be treated with. Kool musicians know that 
even though you might not like everybody in the band, you all have to get along or the music you play together will sound terrible. Showing respect and consideration to others will lower your temperature.
