Your Musical Potential

How your personality affects the way you learn, play, and sing music

Here's what you do:

Choose one of the following sentences as the motivating goal of your life. There are no wrong choices, each choice is perfectly excellent. It’s very important that you don’t choose the purpose you think other people want you to choose, or that you think is ‘proper’. Also, it will help if you imagine that you can do just one of these things with your life, not a blend of two or three. It won’t do you any good to try and mix and match.

Just click the one link in blue below that sums up what you feel is the true purpose of life.

The purpose of life is to be faithful and responsible, to do your duty, to do what’s required, and to be there when people need you.

The purpose of life is to be genuine and real, to be yourself, to be the person God made you to be, and life is a journey of discovery to find out who that person really is. To have a meaningful life, and meaningful is defined by who you are, not what you do.

The purpose of life is to live a life of excitement, to take risks and live boldly on the edge, to strive against the odds and win mightily, and to have as much fun as you can, if possible, all the time.

The purpose of life is to master skills and abilities that give you power for good over people, material, technology, and resources. This power, in turn, allows you to accomplish great things. The purpose of life is to accomplish great things.

Why is this important? A person’s personality, their approach to and view of life, affects what they see and hear in music, how they practice and play or sing, what they want to get from music, what they can easily or with difficulty put into their performing. Learning music is about you personally becoming a musician, not just a random person or student being able to sing or play. The fact is that many people work on music, even as students taking lessons, and yet only a few actually learn to perform well, even if just for themselves. And they may take lessons for years trying to learn to no avail. You want to be one of those who actually becomes a singer or player, average or awesome, so it’s very useful to know the areas you will excel in – and have trouble with, and how to deal with those potentials. This is so that you, personally, will be that one person in 20 who ends up playing and singing, skillfully, just like you want it to be. Even professional musicians, instructors, and teachers benefit greatly from understanding their predispositions as they approach mastering their art. Teaching based on what your strengths and weakness are, your skills and foibles, produces more progress and learning in lessons than instruction that doesn’t know how students tick.
