Have you decided to learn a musical instrument?
Perhaps you were mesmerized as you listened to a pianist effortlessly create an enchanting memory from those 88 keys, or you may have stared in awe as a guitarist boasted skills and talent that you didn’t even know was possible. Whatever it is that has inspired you, the music world welcomes you with open arms.
Indeed, the journey to becoming a musician is a wonderful one. That being said, it sure doesn’t come without its challenges. It can see that while many people start on the jounrey, a lot fall of the bandwagon along the way. What is the problem?
Of course, many factors may come into play, but one of the significant ones that we are going to talk about today is practice. We all know that old saying ‘practice makes perfect’ but does it really make such a difference? In a word; yes! However, allow us to tell you why we feel so strongly on the matter.
Our Minds Need Repetition
When we learn something new, our minds are craving the act of repetition. that’s right, our incredible minds are made to learn, but we have to do our part and give it the repetition that it needs. You will soon see that once you start to get into a good habit of practice, everything that you are learning will somehow start to slip into place, making room for further learning and a big step down the road in your musical journey.
Practice Makes You Fall in Love With Your Instrument
We know that initially, practice may not seem like a great thing. In fact, you may be trying to find a million and one reasons why you don’t need to do it. However, if you do this, you are actually depriving yourself of the chance to really fall in love with your instrument!
Practice is like setting up your very own dates with your instrument. It is a little alone time for the two of you and as you start to get to know each other better, you will soon see that you were simply made to be together. Indeed, the more you practice, the more that you and your instrument will really start to bond.
We are delighted that you have taken the first step on the road to becoming a musician. Don’t allow yourself to be like the others who fall off the wagon before they really get to the good stuff!
