Music Connections: Learning

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered,you will never grow”. ~ Ronald E .Osborn

Growing is a process.  It can be ongoing, transforming, motivational, a passion.  Learning music is such a process.  And, there is so much to learn and experience.  Here are just a few ways you learn about music.

Reading – there is so much written about music.  One of my current favorites is This is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin.  Find something of interest to you.

Listen to different styles/genres of music.  Trade ipods with someone for an hour and hear there tunes.  Try music from another country.

Learn to play an instrument.  Or, develop more skills on an instrument you know.  Take voice lessons.  Try toning or chanting.  You may find a new passion.

Connecting with music is about connecting with life.  So, live a little and try something new.  My charge to you this week is to learn something new about music this week.  Share how it has affected you.

The next entry will be the last in this series.
