Be Creative – How To Start Being Creative, Creativity Now
Be Creative. How to start being creative. Creativity now. Find something you are interested in. Start learning the skills needed to create it and then keep developing your skills in that field.
Have you heard the phrase, ‘You never stop learning’? It’s something I have learned over the years. There is always something to learn, something you can develop further. You can achieve whatever you put your mind to.
This applies not only to learning to play piano but to anything creative. Creativity is a journey, something to develop. The more you do, the more you learn.
The music I will be teaching on this site will not only be how to read music but also how to develop improvisation from a melody line and chord symbol.
The Beginning of My Creativity
When I was a child, I had the desire to learn the piano. Music is based on the first seven letters of the alphabet. Hence, the illustration ‘Easy as A-B-C’.
That was the starting place. It took not only the desire to be able to play the piano but regular lessons, practice and determination to get to where I am now with my music.
Although I learned the ‘classical’ style of piano, over the years I have learned some jazz, contemporary and improvisation.
The skills I learned were very valuable in developing my personal improvisation, composition and teaching. The term ‘You never stop learning’ is very much to the forefront of my music now as it was years ago, with consistent development particularly in improvisation and composition.
Music creativity has options. Perhaps you know how to play an instrument but don’t know where to go from there. Are you in the position of having learned an instrument as a child and have ‘forgotten’ most of it. I’ve had many students over the years in that situation.
On this site I will be developing some lessons to apply to those situations.
I know there are situations where it is not practical for you to go to lessons to learn.
We have the advantage now to have access to loads of training in many forms via the internet.
