How to Listen by Evelyn Glennie

“Music really is our daily medicine.” I would recommend this video to anyone who wants to learn how to listen better to music, their own music or just to become a better listener for all those who are important to you. Music is an expression of the human experience. The human experience is much more than just using our ears. The text transcript of this talk is available here. ~Jim

How to Select a Guitar Teacher

 

Resources from Jim's other business, FirstGuitar.com:

As an experienced guitar teacher, Jim Thomas observed that some new players grow frustrated and quit because they think they don't have what it takes to play the guitar, when in reality they just have a bad instrument that is difficult to learn on.


Jim co-founded FirstGuitar.com in order to address this issue. FirstGuitar.com provides instruments that are guaranteed to be good instruments for learning. We individually inspect and perform a customized adjustment to each new guitar so you can be 100% sure that it is easy to play and learn on.
