Learning to play an instrument is really learning about yourself, Am i curious? Expressive? Passionate? Do i have discipline?, will i follow through? Can i be humbled and frustrated and still come back tomorrow? Can i see beauty in the tedious? Can i truly be in the moment? Can i play well with others and revel in their success?
These habits are forever and work everywhere.
