Every Artist or Musician Needs to Watch This

I did not expect this video to inspire me as much as it did. Perhaps it hit me at a time in my life when I’m excited about making music again. I formed a new band, started taking piano lessons, studying music theory, received a vintage 1984 Roland electric piano from my Uncle in-law, and have started learning Ableton Live. I’m inspired to make music more than ever before and it might end up becoming more than just a hobby. I’ve always considered it to be just a hobby that I did when the moment strikes me or if I was bored. But I realized I’m never bored and if I actually want to put out more music, I need to actually make it more than just a casual goal. It’s gotta be serious.

The stars are aligning for me as a musician. Did I just call myself a musician? Yes I did. I’m not a hobbyist, or a hack, or a noob – terms I called myself before today. I’ve been making music since 2000 and have played in 3 bands so far since 2007. I think it’s time to give myself some credit.

    By the twenty minute mark, I was completely hooked. You’re right, this ended up being more inspiration than I expected after the first four minutes.

    A search for top drawer WordPress sites brought me to your site and then to this video. ‘After 30 years? Take your writing seriously kidr. Seriously.’ Is what he said to me. Choice.
