One of my favorite things about a new year is that it’s a perfect time to reflect on your life so far, an opportunity to take stock of the direction you have been going in, and to implement positive change to improve and shape your life to be more like what you truly want it to be.
One aspect of my life for which I am eternally grateful is that it has been blessed with the gift of music.
This of course primarily stems from the piano / keyboard lessons I received as a child but also through learning music theory, and through the various other musical activities this wonderful gift evolved into such as composing, arranging, recording and performing music — and what is in my view the ultimate gift — the opportunity to share the gift of music with others as a piano / keyboard teacher.
To a non-musician, it’s hard to describe the profound impact the presence of music in your life has, but as an example, I often find myself filled with a seemly inexplicable joy that wells up inside me. I don’t even have to be playing or listening to music to experience it. It seems I have reached a point where I hear music in everything all around me.
Music is everywhere, and it uplifts us in a way that few (if any) other things do.
It is for this reason that church-goers of all religions across the globe use music as an integral part of their services — to uplift their spirits and let their souls soar.
It’s why people play music when they exercise. It energizes the body from the inside out by aligning our body, mind and soul with the essence of our being, empowering us to dig deeper — to achieve better results and be the best version of ourselves we can be.
It’s why people everywhere are turning away from excessive time in front of their tv and computer games in favor of a more meaningful pursuit, a journey of self-discovery, education and self-improvement through music lessons, and in particular learning to play piano / keyboard.
So today my message is simple. If you make one new year’s resolution, let it be this:
