If you’re anything like me, you love music. And it’s something that you want to completely pursue. You think that it’s amazing and it makes you so happy. Oh wait, is that only me?? Lol I am such a music nerd. I’ll tell you a little about myself: I have been taking piano lessons for about 18 years and double bass lessons for 6 years. I have also been taking viola lessons for about 4 months now. And the kicker is that I’m thinking about adding singing lessons on top of that. Yeah, I’m such a nerd. I look forward to my lessons every week. And I’m constantly practicing and delving into more music literature. This is cool information and all, but the million dollar question is how do I justify spending this much money on myself? Notice how I changed it from “afford” to “justify.”
It’s not that I don’t think they are expensive because they definitely are. However, in my mind, I do it in addition to working. Therefore, it is my hobby. Music is something that I’ve invested a lot of time to. In my perspective, I don’t think of it as extra. I need to continue studying music. It’s become a necessity.
Think of it like traveling. To some people, traveling seems like a luxury, but there are people who absolutely need to travel. It makes them happy. This all may sound silly, and I hope you can understand. Those who study music don’t ever stop. They want to learn more. It’s not about learning a set of songs and being satisfied. Learning music is a constant journey. And that is how I justify having multiple music lessons!
