In my opinion, enjoying the music you are being taught is essential to a good relationship between you and the musical instrument you are playing. Learning music from a standard lesson book, while it may help you learn the basics, can get boring and cause you to lose interest in the lesson, your teacher, and eventually the instrument. That’s why, from the very beginning, I have my students tell me a few songs or pieces of music that they would like to learn. Even as a beginner, you can learn the basics while playing songs you like.
I hope you are all blessed today by enjoying the music at your finger tips.
