Can adults learn to play a new instrument and juggle the rest of the responsibilities of life?
These past two weeks, we’ve been looking at the different issues that hold us back from achieving the artistic success we want. That success could be as big as headlining a major concert or as simple as learning one new song on the piano.
In fact, most of the time, it’s not really even the process of learning that is too complicated for us to grasp. It’s the emotions that try to distract us and tear us down. (Of course, this is true for all art, but this time, we’ll look solely at music.)
Musician Unstuck: Creating Your Perfect Practice
I am incredibly excited to be able to present an ebook that tackles the fears of musicians and brings some structure to overcoming those negative emotions.
By looking at successful musicians – both the famous ones we’ve all heard of and the players who will never see the limelight – we see characteristics and strategies that we can adopt. If you’ve tried to learn an instrument before but gave up, it doesn’t mean that you’ll never be able to play. It only means you weren’t prepared for the struggles and doubts that artists face.
One of my favorite topics is “Organization for Scattered Artists”, and this book is an outpouring of that exact idea. We’ll set goals. We’ll set practice schedules. We’ll test your interest in different instruments to make sure you’ve got the tools you need to set your art free.
Available on Amazon
The book is now available for the Amazon Kindle, and the Nook and Lulu editions are coming later in the week. For those that do not have a Kindle, please note that you can still read the book on any tablet device or smart phone with the Kindle app, or you can read it directly on your computer.
The Kindle gives the book a page count of approximately 75. So, you can use a quick read and jump straight into your custom practice schedule.
