Have you had your "5 for 5" this week?
Try to do something musical for at least 5 minutes, at least 5 days of the week. Make music a part of your day! Listen to music, play an instrument, sing songs you know or make up your own.
You've probably heard the saying "Practice makes perfect." Well, it isn't true. There is no such thing as perfect. Even professional musicians who are paid to play their music make mistakes sometimes, and they practice every day for hours! But it is true that practice makes you better. And as with any skill, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. And the easier it becomes, the more fun you can have with it. So...
Go make some music! And have fun!!
