The Key to Learning a New Instrument

Learning a new instrument is the same as learning anything new in life. It takes tons and tons of practice before you can truly get good at it. However, this shouldn’t deter you at all, because you’re more than capable of becoming a master at any instrument you choose—even if you don’t think you’re musically inclined. There are many things you can do to make this happen, but this one underlying tip is something to always remember.

Baby Steps

Similar to working out, if you do too much too fast you’ll burn yourself out. It’s very important that you take small steps in the beginning, and ease yourself into it. You want to flow into your practice organically, in a way that feels natural and enjoyable.

10 Minutes a Day

You might think that practicing for ten minutes a day won’t accomplish a whole lot, but you’d be dead wrong. When you’re first starting out, 10 minutes a day is a great way to dip your toes in without overwhelming yourself. When you’re truly ready, you can then dive into the world of music at your heart’s desire. The main idea is that you’re enjoying every step of the process!
