The Invitation

Post guitar lesson photo at Lucky Fin Project Weekend!

THE INVITATION: one of my favorite moments from my work with kids is when I invite them to try my guitar after a concert. 

It’s ESPECIALLY AWESOME at Lucky Fin Project weekend, because I get to help #LuckyFin friends from around the world to make their first sounds on the instrument… 

One of the greatest moments as a teacher is when a student plays his or her first chord, and looks up with the biggest, “HECK yeah, I can do this” Smile. 

I always remind students, “Remember that EVERY SINGLE PERSON at the top of his or her field of discipline (from farmers to astronauts to guitarists) started with one step like this in their craft.” Where can you make a first step today?
