Upcoming Young Guitarist

“I love playing the guitar.  Let’s learn piano next.”
“Have you heard of F#?”
“What is D dim?”
-J. Wranglers

J. Wranglers started guitar lessons with me in January 2012.  He started as a student who was rough with instruments and all things around him as it was his demeanor.  His attention in music class was focused on the number and buttons on the stereo.  Through our music lessons, he has learned to play gently, handle instruments carefully, and listen to the music playing from the stereo.  He loves making new discoveries in music and developed a curiosity to learn more.

Studies have shown that children who are exposed to music, especially those who play an instrument do better in school than those who do not.  Music helps the mind be alert, retain information, and with reading comprehension.  Students also develop discipline because they are learning a new language, which can be challenging at times.  A student learns to discipline themselves to practice to learn how to play an instrument and prepare for a performance.  In addition, playing a music instrument relieves stress and helps a person relax.  It is a simple joy in being able to make one’s own music to one’s liking.  For anyone, music provides reachable steps of achievement.  Learning to play and perform music is an amazing accomplishment and gives oneself proud satisfaction with each song.  Overall, playing music is fun, especially playing with others and for oneself.

See the excited J. Wranglers perform at “What I Am – The Musical” on Thursday, May 10th at 7pm.  It’ll be “satisfactual!”
