Music From the Heart

Monday, January 9, 2023 by William Suit | Uncategorized


Playing an instrument comes easy for some people.  There are those who seem to have natural talent and can artistically express themselves with little effort. Others struggle and sometimes find it difficult to tap into the emotion of their music.  They may be technically superior at the piano, guitar, singing, etc., but a less-perfected performer may draw deeper feelings from a song.

Studying music is good for your brain among other things. If you struggle with finding the emotion, the benefit of studying is not diminished.  So, don't feel that you've wasted your time or tuition on your studies.

That aside, at Pedal Point Music we strive to get to the heart of the music.  Performing or composing is an art form.  It's an expression of one's self or experiences.  So, it's not about the quantity of songs in your repertoire or even the quality - even though you want to have a good  song list and perform those songs well. It is about expressing yourself!  It is about finding the "heart" of your music.

So as the new year begins and you continue toward your goals, go for the heart! 

After all, music is the constant voice beneath the progressions of life.


Welcome Back!

Welcome to 2023 and to a new year of music studies!  

As a new year unfolds, I hope you've made some new year resolutions that include your goals for studying music.  Our mantra is, "Music is the constant voice beneath the progressions of life."  That's what the name, "Pedal Point" is all about. So many things change around rapidly, it's important to have a constant.  Music is that constant for me.  

There are some new students around and I want to say welcome to you!  People are attracted to our school because of many things, but a big thing is the cozy, warm environment in which we have our school.  It's an escape form the busyness that surrounds us.  

We are just a few weeks away from some wonderful events in March.  So, get ready to soar with THE FLIGHT OF THE OWLS by clarifying and updating your goals for this year.  Let's move ahead with enthusiasm and determination!

Welcome back!
