Everyone is aware of how geniuses are born. The saying “1 percent talent, 99 percent effort” is especially true in the world of music and all the famous people have started their journey towards perfection in music with an instrument which they have received as a legacy, a present or which they bought themselves from a secondhand music shop.
Recognition in music comes with great sacrifices
Playing an instrument can help you achieve success in the world of music, provided that you devote yourself completely to it and are willing to improve yourself over time. Great guitar players were afraid to sacrifice love, quality time with their family or even their personal needs to practice a difficult part in a song until they mastered it completely.
A great music player, especially in an orchestra, is aware of the fact that mastery in a field as difficult as music can only be achieved with patience, perseverance and a great deal of repetition, which is why this world is not for the weak and those who lack discipline.
Choose to play for passion, rather than for fame
Music will provide great rewards for those who choose to dedicate themselves completely to it, yet fame and good fortune are only side benefits which come as a result of enjoying the music, rather than efforts made to seek attention and be recognized.
Apart from allowing to proudly stay on a stage accompanied by a team which often feels like a family, playing music will reduce your stage fright, help you connect with people, help you gain confidence in yourself and sooth your heart when things get difficult. Furthermore, playing music reduces stress and helps you unwind, plus it is a great way to spend a cozy night with a few friends.
Learn to play to live longer
Studies indicate that musicians playing a flute have a better pulmonary capacity, thanks to all the breathing exercises they do in order to produce the sound they want. Not to mention that learning how to play a musical instrument has the ability to increase the brain’s capacity and memory – the brain was able to store more easily audio information – as well as the spatial and temporal skills. This could prove beneficial for treating degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, provided that they are combined with traditional methods of treatment.
Music can help boost your concentration and listening skills
For those who want to get the best results, no matter if they are playing on a new set of drums or on used guitars for sale, they must learn to distinguish the false notes they play from the rest, while also taking into account aspects like rhythm, note duration, tempo, sound quality. This forces them to carefully listen to their musical piece and improve their playing.
Good listeners will also fit better inside an orchestra, which is why this characteristic is greatly valued in the musical world.
As you can see, music turn your life for the better and help you shine, so start looking for used guitars or any other instruments you may be fond of and get practicing!
