learning music.


learning new music is such a struggle for me. i'm slow, i get distracted, my brain goes all googly moogly...it's one of those things that i have to brute force and get over in order to really enjoy playing music. if i could have two superpowers, one would be to have the entire repertoire implanted into my head so that all i have to do is whip out my sticks and go to town. {but if i could only have one superpower, it would be to have a bottomless stomach. that goes without saying?}

anyways, learning lots of notes is what i've been doing for the past week and what i will do for the next few weeks. everything else is just what happens when i'm on a practice break. the onion pie snacktimes, the foam roller romps, photoshop lessons... all in between sessions of forcibly stuffing my brain with f-sharp runs and weird chords.

it'll pay off, molly. says future self who is eating post-performance reception cheese.

I wish I could play an instrument! The husband has tried to teach me how to play the guitar but I just don't get it, ha! Have a great weekend!

Learning the music is the best part for me, everything is so new , challenging, and exciting. Its perfecting it that becomes the chore the constant refining and trying to keep it alive after weeks or months or work. But it's always worth the work:)
Happy Practicing!
Post a video when its ready:)
