Want to know the secret formula for musical success? Here it is:
1. Find a source of quality instruction.
2. Pick a specific thing you’d like to learn and spend half your practice time working on it, day in and day out, even if you only have 5 minutes.
3. For the other half of your practice time,, take Joseph Campbell’s advice and “follow your bliss,” working on whatever interests you at that moment.
4. Whenever you can, play with other musicians, and perhaps for an audience.
There you have it, folks, The Secret Formula For Musical Success. As with all such ‘secrets,’ I invite you to share it with as many of your friends as possible!
