Welcome to Episode 6 of the Music Mindset Podcast! Anytime we have new students joining our programs, we always like to ask them one very simple question: “Why do you want to learn a musical instrument?” Each answer might be as unique as each individual student, but a very common response we hear is “I just want to keep it fun.” This is a wonderful intention, but raises the discussion: What might we be setting ourselves up for if our top priority is to “keep it fun”.  In this episode we talk about:

  • What happens to your mindset when your priority is to avoid feelings of discomfort in the learning process?
  • The focus training done in Piano Foundation Formula program
  • Music brings so much joy, fun and connection—but is it right to expect the learning process to bring these feelings every step of the way?
