"2017 has just arrived, which usually means one thing: it's time to
compile a brand new list of New Year’s resolutions! Learning a new
instrument should be on top of every music lover’s list, but
unfortunately, a lot of people lose steam far too quickly and forget
about it midway through January." continues Mundt Music.

Don’t be one of those people. This year, make sure to actually stick to learning a new musical instrument all the way to December with the following tips and suggestions:
1. Buy your instrument.
Sure, you can just borrow a guitar from a friend or just play the piano at your cousin’s house, but you’re most likely to stick to your goal when you make a big investment. After all, it would be a shame to just leave your violin untouched on your shelf after spending so much money on it. Plus, it is easier to practice anytime if you have your instrument within arm’s reach all the time.
2. Hire a tutor.
Want a bit of a shortcut? Taking lessons with a good teacher will help you achieve your new year’s resolution much faster and more efficiently. You can save a lot of time when there is someone who points out your mistakes and provides feedback on your progress. If you don’t have the money to hire a music teacher, you can trade lessons with a friend who knows about the instrument you’re learning in exchange for lessons on your primary instrument. It’s a win-win situation for both of you.
