Best Musical Advice
Always listen to and follow the musical path in your heart. Study and play the music that you love and that you’re passionate about, then you can’t go wrong! Always be respectful to other musicians and to yourself and never put yourself down, musically speaking. All great musicians started at the beginning we just never get to hear the first notes they played! A positive attitude and mentality are also very important to maintain. Work hard and have fun!
