It’s a common scenario. You began playing your instrument when you were young and maybe even had a music teacher. You progressed slowly and eventually learned to play better and maybe you even learned to read music somewhat, but just barely.
Then you hit the wall of frustration.
You began to just play around with your instrument, making music but not really growing as a musician. Your music-reading ability did not get any better and you had no clue about how the music on the page really worked. You may have began to play a few songs by ear but you worked hard at learning a few simple songs and were not able to play new songs easily.
Then you quit.
You stopped learning anything new. You became stuck in this pattern. Occasional you might have sat down to play but after a little bit of playing around you hit the wall of frustration again.
I know this feeling very well. I had this same feeling of musical failure for many years until I learned how to solve this problem.
The answer to the problem was to always stay out of the “Overwhelm Zone”
Learning to play music requires you to stay in the “Growth Zone” which takes four crucial parts and a dash of what I call free play.
To begin growing musically you need the motivation to learn. To stay motivated you need the right information at the right time. Then you need to put that information into practice. Finally you put all this practical information into your playing and suddenly …
You have grown to a new musical level.
Now you need to repeat the process.
So you need more motivation, more information and more engaging and useful practice to continue developing in your playing further.
However this is what actually happens …
You practice and practice and eventually you begin to drift off to free play time.
Free playing is great! You just play what you want and don’t worry about mistakes. But free play has to kick back into motivation to grow at some point. If you free play too much you become frustrated. You hit the wall of frustration again! This is how all your practice sessions seem to end. You’re right back in the “Overwhelm Zone”
But what if you had the motivation and the correct information for each time you sat down to learn more about music?
What if you had a structured plan in place that was a proven method to teach you how music worked from the ground up?
What if this plan way laid out for you by a teacher with years of experiance in taking the hardest concepts of music and simplifying them so that you could understand them easily?
What if these lessons where quick and you could watch them over and over again on your own free time?
Well … this is possible for anyone who becomes a member of The Academy.
