A, B, Twinkle Little Sheep?
In this episode, Craig continues to talk about the different things that we get from learning music that translate into all other aspects of our life. Motivation is one major one of those. Whether it's mom or dad encouraging a student to practice to a student finding "that" piece that becomes what consumes them, motivation is important and necessary, whether it's internal or external.

There are a whole lot of things that music lessons give you. Discipline is one of the biggest things you can learn from music. The discipline of practice, the discipline of learning, and much, much more! On this episode, Craig talks about the discipline he's learned from taking music lessons, and how you can learn discipline too!
Craig is talking about different skills that we get through making music that translate into other, non-musical, areas of life. Today it's perseverance. The not giving up, not quitting. It's an important skill to have in music and in life.

Why Should Adults Start Taking Music Lessons....or Continue?
Adult learners have been some of my most favorite students. Whether beginners, needing a refresher, or wanting to continue to learn, they are so much fun! If you're an adult (or child) wanting to learn, I'd love to help!
It's Too Hard!
What's Your Anthem?
Challenging yourself is HARD. But, when you push past those times you may want to quit and continue to make slow and steady progress, you will look back and find that it wasn't as bad as you thought it was. That progress may feel small as you're going, but keep moving forward!

Practicing is WORK
Taking lessons can be fun. Making music can (and should be) fun. But practicing? That's not always fun. Practicing is WORK. There's no getting around it. You can get by on natural ability for so long and it will take you so far without putting in work. The work will help you improve as a musician. The work will help stretch and grow you to be able to try new things and pick up harder and harder challenges a little bit easier.
