YEAR ONE

In Loving Memory Of My Grandmother, Lucille Barker.

The woman who introduced me to music



Course Name:   Intro To A Multi-Instrumentalist

Piano - Drums - Electric Bass - Double Bass - Guitar

Welcome to the FIRST year of YOUR musical journey to becoming a Multi-Instrumentalist! :) It warms my heart that you agree to undertake such a journey.  Even if you have studied music in the past, remember, forget ALL you know and start from SCRATCH.  This will be the easiest way to learn and to ensure you haven't missed anything along the way.  If you are now beginning your journey to becoming a multi-instrumentalist, just follow along step by step (not skipping ANYTHING) and you'll be well on your way in no time; I PROMISE!  Trust me, it's like those Karate Kid moments where Mr. Miyagi gave Daniel Son all those chores.  Remember?  He couldn't see where it was leading at all, but wasn't he learning??  I still remember to this day, the joy, excitement and pleausre I felt when Mr. Miyagi finally showed a frustrated Daniel Son that it's ALL CONNECTED!  Similarly to myself, when I was homeless, I couldn't see a way out.  I knew if I kept living and DESIRING to live, (that the key, sincere desire) I would somehow get out of the situation; and guess what??  I DID!  Not of my own accord, but from a complete stranger.  Listen, If I can overcome homelessness, with my help, you TOO can teach yourself how to become the multi-instrumentalist you envision.  See it, see yourself playing the instruments you want.  Look at yourself, admire the finished product, KNOW WHAT YOU ARE AIMING FOR.  The joy you will receive at the end cannot be expressed through this keyboard.  Give it your ALL!!  Truly commit your heart, soul, mind, energy and willpower to this FIRST year.  Only YOU can make it happen for yourself, but remember...you have a support system now.  You have someone to show you how, and walk you along the way.  Do NOT underestimate your abilities.  You are capable; you are MORE than capable.  Now, here's how to start :)
