Learning online gets even easier

by Darren on June 29, 2015

It is amazing what you can learn online, often for free. I am fortunate to have learnt music via the piano when I was a kid and I still know how to read music. My instrument of choice though is the drums and I still have a bash at them now and then. Guitar is something I would like to be able to play but due to time constraints I am looking for an easy option. Even if you don’t want to play the guitar check out this website which actually allows to you play into your computer microphone and it scores you. Of course it also provides the lessons and the songs to play along with.

Persistence Plus

June 17, 2015

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” –Calvin Coolidge The quote above comes for an article I read […]
