Learn Guitar in NE Philly
Your ability to learn guitar begins with you
No matter what your musical skill level is right now, there are going to be many significant challenges ahead of you. Your attitude and the way you deal with musical challenges will be the single greatest factor in determining how much you will achieve as a musician. If you believe that you can and will overcome your greatest challenges, you will find a way, or you will seek help from a guitar teacher, trainer, coach, or mentor that will help you through it. When you don’t believe you can achieve, you are done, it’s over because you won’t get it done no matter what.
The Sad Facts
- More than half of people in the United States who begin to play guitar will quit in less than one year from the time they begin to play. Another significant percentage of people will play occasionally, but will not make much forward progress on their instrument. Why? There are many possible factors but the biggest two reasons are: having a negative attitude and not learning from a great guitar teacher on a long-term basis.
- Inaction (taking no action), when action is necessary, is the worst possible thing for all areas in life. For most people, inaction comes easily and naturally. It’s so easy to do “nothing.” It’s so easy to procrastinate. It’s so easy to not take guitar lessons. It’s so easy to not find a good guitar teacher. Those decisions to do nothing (or very little) can lead to regret.
- Regret is a poison, a toxic waste that marinates in your soul. What drives our regrets? Most of our regrets in life occurred, not from what we have done or said or thought, but from what we didn’t do. Our failures are not the main cause of regret and unhappiness, it is passing up our opportunities to grow, improve and make things better that hurts us the most. Think about that.
David’s Approach…the What, Who, & How
At David Joel Guitar Studio the first question we ask new students is “what will you do to reach your goals?” Even if you are only able to make a small baby step forward, it is a step toward a goal. This very moment is the first moment of your future. You create your future by what you do in the present! So what will you do right now? What thoughts will you allow to fill your mind? Who will you call or email? How will you spend the rest of your day? Which actions will you take right now? What will you do in this moment that will contribute to your future?
