Expanding your Musical Library

Expanding your Musical Library

Growing up, we tend to gravitate toward a particular style of music. While listening and learning one style can form a great foundation & love for music, it limits our musical library. Listening to other styles can have a profound effect on your playing as musicians and is well worth exploring. Below are steps to help avoid this music blunder.

FIRST – Explore new music. Listen to new music by asking your parents what they use to listen to, ask your instructor for some suggestions, or flip the station on Pandora.

NEXT – As you listen, focus on what makes this style unique. Set time aside each day to explore the music on your instrument. Try taking a melody out of a song, listen for a chord that grabs your attention, or find a progression you like.

FINALLY – Once you have control over what you have learned, try blending it into the style you are familiar with. If you play rock, try adding in a jazz chord to your playing to spice things up. Ultimately, learning new styles will make you a better player but most importantly, it will keep you motivated to keep practicing your instrument!

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
