Enjoy the Journey (Music isn’t a Destination) - Sharon Bill Music Matters Vlog
When starting to learn to play an instrument it’s inevitable that you have particular pieces that you would like, one day, to play. It’s also easy for that to become your sole focus - but then you miss enjoying the journey. I’ve just started to play the treble recorder (as a complete beginner) and, even though I’ve had to work my way through the easiest beginner pieces, I am so enjoying the journey of learning. Be careful that you don’t miss the enjoyment that there is in playing all sorts of pieces as you build up your skillset. Of course keep some favourites in mind as a motivation to practice - but enjoy playing for its own sake, regardless of your ability level.
