My Philosophy

Love. Learn. Live.

the 3 stages of skill

1. Fans

I strongly believe that with any skill, the first step, first phase, is an overall binding factor. The reason you’re here – love. For music. We’re all fans. However, music -like anything, really- gets so much more interesting when you understand what’s happening. Speak the language. Everybody that plays will confirm this.

2. Evolve

Learning, then, is only a natural consequence. A logical next step in the journey, evolution.
That’s why I am so proud that I am currently helping over 120,000 students from all over the world learn.
To become musicians. 
Brothers in arms that live a musical lifestyle, whether professionally or not.
Listening, playing, enjoying, sharing and teaching.

3. Synergy

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you’re still only a lover, already a learner or an actual liver (that sounds strange), in every stage of musicianship learning is and always stays a wonderful challenge. 
Learning with- and from each other is even better. Transfer your knowledge to cause growth.
Teach what you know to help make the world a better place. 
I invite you to join in.
