How Adversity Shaped My Music Making Journey
Nearly all of us have our own origin story around music making. For many our first encounters with singing or playing a musical instrument are traumatic - so often we have been told or laughed at or have heard, ‘You’re not good enough,’ or ‘Stop!’ Or words or experiences to that effect, that shut us down, and our musical journey may have sadly stopped there (for the time being!).
For others, may be you stopped singing or playing because you didn’t find the right teacher to inspire you or the right kind of music or band or community of singers / musicians to bring out your unique soul and heart connection to music.
Maybe you are one of the ‘lucky’ few who haven’t had any trauma or lack of inspirational and supportive musical environments around you and you have had a lifelong happy relationship with music making!
