I played my first guitar around the age of 13, discovered it was difficult to learn on my own, and decided to take lessons at a local music store. My teacher was excellent and had me playing songs very early on in the lessons. It was fun! I believe this is one of the most important ways to instill a love for music and maintain the motivation to continue playing.
It carried me through everything from getting up in front of my friends to play, a garage band, playing gigs and my degree in music!
In college, I learned to play classical guitar at an advanced level in addition to becoming a decent piano, marimba and drum set player. That takes a fair bit of motivation which, believe me, I wouldn't have had if I didn't truly enjoy it. My passion for music might have been dampened if teachers were not able to help me enjoy learning the often challenging methods for playing musical instruments.
