Why musicians learn languages
This is my personal observation from people I know who study both languages and music in Krakow, Poland. Many people will tell you that musicians have a gift for language, I do not believe it, at least not in a significant way. I have taught too many students to think people magically learn a language from the air. However, when musicians study a language they learn it well. This is my observation, musicians are very systematic in learning languages. They learn languages like they have been taught to learn music. How to they learn a languages? They learn it by practicing the same sequence over and over. Have you ever been outside music or piano hall when someone is learning to play the piano, they play the same song over and over until they know this sequence perfectly. They are focused determined and do not study the theory of the song they are learning too much they simply learn the song. Languages are the same way. You simply need to learn the sequences that appear in a language over and over until your target language is a reflex.
