In this edition of the Curtis music Academy podcast. We are going to be discussing how you can persevere and stay the course in your guitar lessons Tulsa. So without further ado, my name is Steven. I have been a music instructor at the Curtis music Academy for one year now. I have learned so much about teaching students in all ages, such as five years old to 50 years old. And even higher than that, I have learned how to teach students by learning how they learn. I’ve also learned how to monetize my time as an instructor and use time management to my advantage as an instructor preparing for lessons as well as time management in giving the guitar lessons Tulsa and making the most of each lesson possible.
And also growing as an instructor, you know, personal development and you know, making sure that I am learning the guitar in some way, shape or form, even if it’s a little bit of weak. You know, I want to learn one thing a week that I didn’t know the week before. And if I wanted to accelerate that process, I could learn one new thing a day about music. That way I am progressing seven times faster. So without further ado, again, my name is Steven. I’ve been an instructor at the Christian music Academy for one year now, 12 months this December. And there’s been so much to learn, so much to teach you guys.
And I’ve also been a musician for 12 years coming this March. So as of next March, I will have. I’ve been playing guitar for half my life and so I’m only 24 not even a quarter in life yet, almost a quarter. And I’ve loved every single minute of the music career I’ve had and made so far. I’ve written many songs, I’d say anywhere from about 20 to maybe 30 songs I’ve written and maybe even less than that, maybe more like 15 to 20 and I plan on making even more guys and having even better arrangements of music due to my new knowledge of chords and new material on as I’m constantly learning myself as I teach you. And so without further ado, I’m a musician and a plan on doing it for the rest of my life and I will do it for the rest of my life. It’s my calling.
And so we’re talking about how you can persevere and stay the course in your guitar lessons Tulsa. You know, we’re going to cover points like how celebrating the little wins is crucial to you reaching your big goals, how you shouldn’t be so hard and critical of yourself when learning your guitar. And lastly, how you can stay inspired by watching and, and, and attending concerts and things that you love so that you can maintain and stay the course in your music lessons. So without further ado, here’s how you can persevere and stay the course and your guitar lessons Tulsa. We want to celebrate the little wins. That is our first point, celebrating the little wins. Now, if we celebrate the little wins, will we not also celebrate the big wins? And if we do not celebrate the little wins, how can we expect to celebrate the big wins? It’s going to be very, very, very important that you celebrate.
The little wins if you want to persevere and stay the course and your guitar lessons Tulsa. Now, if you don’t want to stay the course and persevere in your guitar lessons Tulsa, here’s one thing you can do. You can never celebrate the little wins, the little achievements that you make along the way. Just don’t do it. Don’t celebrate it because it will greatly increase and diminish your ability to play and desire to play a guitar. However, that is only if you want to not persevere and not state of course, but if you do want to stay the course and persevere in your guitar lessons Tulsa, you will definitely want to celebrate the little wins because if you celebrate the little wins, they will make you even more excited and celebrate the big win, which is your biggest goal. Right?
My second point is how you don’t need to be so hard on yourself or critical of yourself when learning the guitar. In my own experience, I have had my share of criticism from the one and only myself when playing and learning guitar. I’ve had many occasions where I felt like I was learning too slowly or I couldn’t get something right. I had to repeat it over and over and there were four. I felt bad because I thought I should be learning faster, but it’s important to have patience with yourself and to not be so hard and critical of your yourself or your skills early on when you are learning guitar.
However, it is very important that you learn how to practice correctly and how to have quality practice so that you can have quality play when it’s time to play the guitar. Remember we play the guitar. We don’t just practice the guitar, we don’t dread the guitar. We play the guitar. And so don’t be so critical of yourself when, when learning guitar or when you’re trying to persevere and stay the course, you want to not nitpick every little detail of your plane or you’re practicing or you’re learning. You know whenever you’re practicing, you’re teaching your hands what to do, your fingers, what to do.
Whenever you’re playing, you’re just enjoying what you’ve already learned and it’s important to have fun during that time. And you know, I, I order you to have fun. That is in order. So my last tip is going to be how you can stay inspired so that you can persevere and stay the course in your guitar lessons Tulsa. So to stay inspired, you want to find what inspires you. I would say action is the biggest motivator. Action is the biggest inspiration. Whenever you take action on something that you love or like, it’s inspiring. Excellence is what I, what I say. And what live church. Craig Rochelle of life, church U S the U S says, he says, excellence, honors God and inspires people.
I don’t know about you, but there has been many occasions in my life where I was inspired by someone who did, who did something, maybe they played guitar, maybe they recorded music, maybe they were a great gymnast or a great, Navy seal, a great soldier, a great anything, great speaker, great theologian, whatever it is, great writer, a fashion designer, whatever it is, their excellence is what inspired me. And so when someone is really good at what they do, it makes others feel like and see that it is possible to achieve whatever they’re doing. And that’s inspiring. That makes us too, that makes us want to aspire to do it. We were inspired before we aspire or maybe we aspire and then we find in spur ration. So it’s important. Stay inspired.
One way I stay inspired is by watching people on YouTube who are better than me. I especially watch bands such as the Jonas brothers or you know, Justin Bieber or Sean Mendez play and perform live. I love live performances. One because I want to do a lot of live performances in my future. And so, that is a few tips and tricks as to and action items as to how you can persevere and stay the course in your guitar lessons Tulsa. You’ll always want to celebrate the small wins. Celebrating the small wins is going to be crucial to you and your success and you staying the course and your guitar lessons Tulsa. My second point was how to not be so hard and critical of yourself by nitpicking the little things that you do wrong, instead focusing on the positive things you do. Right. And then lastly, stay inspired by watching a YouTube video of the Jonas brothers. That’s what inspires me.
