Psychologists say that 80% of decisions that humans make are based on FEAR rather than DESIRE. Is fear holding you back from learning to play an instrument?
FEAR: “I’m too old to learn.”
Fact: We have students in their 80’s!
FEAR: “I’m embarrassed that I’ll be the only adult taking lessons.”
Fact: 31% of our students are adults. (Why should kids have all the fun?)
FEAR: “I don’t have time.”
Fact: When you learn the lifelong benefits of playing music, you will make time. You deserve it!
