Something I was asked recently and What a Great Question!
Learning guitar to me gave me untold confidence and a career of my choosing plus life skills that took me all over the world. In short it was life changing.
As a youngster I lacked self-confidence which affected all aspects of my life both socially and professionally so learning to play the guitar then using that skill, meant that i was doing something others only dreamed of which attracted positive attention. Learning to stand up in front of an audience further built my confidence which helped in both socially and in things like job interviews. Later when i chose to make music my job both playing and teaching I learned more about other peoples needs and requirements and how to appreciate others and empathise with their needs and requirements. Being in Bands took me all over the UK and Europe playing a wide variety of venues and functions, a dream come true!
Moving on armed with only 2 O’Levels (GCSE’s) Grade 5 Music Theory and Teaching Certificate (from a weekend course) I secured a position in a Global Commercial Bank travelling Europe and beyond training on their software systems to high profile financial institutions.
Now I am back into music with private and online tuition and support and loving it but the most rewarding aspect of it all is the wonderful people I have met along the way, many of which have become life long friends. This has to be the biggest and most life changing aspect of the whole journey. People Make People! Do it!!
