Ignition – sparking your initial motivation

The tactical approach towards skill-building is only one part. The other is the student’s attitude towards their first lesson or experience.

Three key factors fuel motivation and the love for the craft:

  • Psychological identity: If one already possess the identity “I am a musician” from the start, they are more likely to take the actions needed to make that happen.
  • Long-term focus: A study of musicians showed that students who came to their first lesson with a long-term commitment outperformed those with a short-term commitment by 400%.
  • Emotional attachment.
