To get good music coming out of you, you’ve got to make sure that plenty of good music is going in.

Take it from me…if there’s one way traffic, you might be ok for a while, but you’ll burn yourself out. Listen far and wide…always keep an ear out for new sounds, and re-visit music that you may have heard years ago and didn’t like. Sometimes we grasp things as we get older that didn’t connect to our younger selves!

It’s always worth paying close attention when listening…it’s one of my mantra’s: Every time you hear a great piece of music you are getting a free lesson from a master! Imagine getting free music lessons from your idols! You can… and in fact, you’ve already had hundreds of them, you just didn’t notice!


Make Better Music is updated every Tuesday.
