“The Opportunist”…


My kids are all pretty good on the guitar. None took music in school or played in the band.  They can all read “tab” but not music. All three of them started with the two or three chords that I showed them and then, through practice, jam sessions with friends, and the internet, they’ve all gone on to surpass me.

Their learning has been hands-on, technology has played a major role, and they’ve had the opportunity to learn with friends.

I think more people are realizing that learning doesn’t have to happen in the traditional setting that most of us remember.  There are many opportunities for learning out there!

I hope that our system doesn’t get so bogged down in itself that we miss them.
