Don’t Give Up
I was often a bad guitar student. I remember completely ignoring my assignments for the week when I started lessons. I wouldn’t practice my music reading at all and completely forget how to do it by my next lesson. I would pick up my book a few hours before the lesson and be determined to practice for an hour before my lesson and 5 minutes later I’d give up. I'd show up for my lesson completely unprepared. I sat in my lesson wishing I was outside playing because it was a nice day. My lesson was only a half an hour, but I didn’t want to even sacrifice that half an hour sitting inside. I went weeks or sometimes months without practice but my parents continued to take me to lessons. They didn’t give up on me and I continued to learn and improve, although it was slow for a few years.
Later I found the key to becoming enthusiastic about guitar by finding music I loved. I matured to a certain extent. After becoming a teen I sat and practiced for hours. I developed a determination to play certain songs that I liked. My interests really began to broaden. I actually became interested in things like music theory, astronomy, mathematics and art. Eventually as a young adult I developed an interest in computer programming, web development and foreign language. I majored in programming in college and earned a degree in web development and design. I worked for several years as a graphic artist and web designer while teaching guitar part time at a music store. After teaching for 10 years I chose to go into music full time. I'm so glad that my parents didn't give up on me when I was 12.
