Failure is the art of playing music. How can we learn if we don’t fail. We use failure to learn about everything else, so why is it that, when it comes to music it’s such a hard lesson to learn. Even as a seasoned musician, the failure is still there. Some call it a block, some enjoy the challenge. But what they all do when they fail or stumble or get stuck is
take a break,
and accept your fate, that you will always fail.
That’s what makes you brilliant because you learn from your mistakes.
It’s the most important learning curve in your journey to greatness and so vital in the growth of a musician, that Dean Kay and Kelly Gordon wrote a song about it
Each time I find myself flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race.
