John, you underrate yourself!!

For C.Y. The muscial phrase as John noted is the equivalent of a sentence or complete thought. For example if you sing the first phrase in the song "Happy Birthday to You" you'll notice a pause at the end of "to you". You sorta sing the whole phrase in one breath and then pause. A musical phrase is indicated by a line connecting the first note of the phrase to the last note of the phrase.

The wrist float-off is beginning training in the art of releasing the last note of a musical phrase (sentence.)
