The Eighth Note Music School Experience

Once upon a time, in a not so long ago state of mind, we all wanted to learn musical instruments. Well, we all think it’s cool, it’s fun, it’s something everyone should do. And yes, it is true – it’s cool, fun, and in many ways, it’s essential – it gives balance to the whole life of color that we all aspire to have.

… And it’s like a sport too – it’s about teamwork, about strategy, and about patience. You can’t just learn music for the sole purpose of enjoying it all to yourself – there’s got to be something else – like how musicians, and bands, and singers, and all the animals who invented music!

But I think you agree too, right?

Learning musical instruments is best enjoyed with teachers, friends, and folks around you to help you out.  So here’s a rundown on how it’s like to learn in a music school if you’re an adult who wants to learn musical instruments. The Eighth Note Music School experience taught me a great deal about that. It’s cool, fun, and in many ways, essential.

Learning How to Play the Guitar

So have you always wanted to play guitar, but never got around to getting started?

At The Eighth Note, the pacing is perfectly tailorfitted to one’s learning curve. I never thought it will be this easy to learn about frets, scales, strings, minor chords, and strumming patterns in a quick and comfortable way. They even will share some finger-picking techniques that are so so so wicked, you’d just want to learn everything right there and then. Learning how to play the guitar is all about teamwork, muscle memory, and persistence. It’s also probably about the good band-vocalist-and-music-teacher who helped me get things right in an hour or two.

Learning How to Play the Ukulele

The Uke!

This is the easiest string instrument to learn, and you can learn it and be an expert in maybe a month of full dedication. Yes to blood, sweat, tears, and sleepless nights. Who wouldn’t want to be the next Adam Sandlers in the Fifty First Dates when he played the ukulele? Yes, everyone says yes. At The Eighth Note, switching between chords and all the beginners techniques are taught in a very fun and informative way – anyone can be a Jake Shimabukuro in no time!

 Learning How to Play the Drums

I work in an office that involves a lot of stressful firefighting coordination, project management, and multi-tasking, but no one ever told me that coordination in learning how to play the drums is hard..er. This is probably the hardest to learn in all of the musical instruments that I’ve tried, which is why it’s even better to learn it in a school such as The Eighth Note. Yes, you can learn everything in one afternoon or so, but it can take months or years of practice to master it – which is why it’s one of the most in demand instruments in the world.

Learning it will be worth it.

Learning How to Play the Keyboard

The most delicate and dramatic musical instrument of all – anyone can get lost in the charisma that the keyboard music brings. I think it’s one of the easiest musical instruments to learn, at least the basics part, and if you’re a beginner and you got your “A” game with you, you can learn how to do some finger acrobatics in the black and white keys like a pro. You can do a Beatles song from stanza 1 to chorus in less than an hour, I can guarantee you that The Eighth Note can give you that!

Recommended for: people like me who’d like to understand sophistication, class, and genius in a different perspective, piano music is for you. #easierthandrums #coolschool #iwantakeyboard

Sitting inside a room for one hour or so, learning from a music mentor who’s not only a friend but a supporter, and finding out something new about how talented you are, is a good deal if you ask me.

It’s a unique joyride.

It’s cool, fun, and definitely essential, especially if you’re too used to the current work-life-balance that you guys have as an adult. It’s shaking things up and learning a different side of you that is waiting to be discovered.

But before we end, let me play a tune for you, take you pick – guitar, uke, drums, or keyboard?
