Your Clarinet Journey
QuickStart Clarinet is all about helping you to find your unique path enjoying the splendors of the clarinet!
Whether that means becoming a professional, or just enjoying your time practicing as a lifetime musician.
Your Clarinet Dream
Music is one of the most magical, lifelong endeavors one can take part in. Though you may only play a little here or there, maybe years go by without picking up your instrument, once you embark on your clarinet journey, it is always a part of you.
Take a moment to reflect on your journey and connect with your inner clarinetist...
What are some of the things that you wish you could do on the instrument?
Have you always wanted to play a particular piece, or perform with a specific group, maybe even get paid to play the clarinet!?!
Whatever that deep desire is, that, my friend, is your clarinet dream.
Reaching Your Dreams
Now that you are more in touch with your clarinet dreams, you can use that as your guiding light to plan your path to success.
Maybe your dream will give you the motivation to practice a few extra hours each week.
Maybe you will finally get the courage to audition for that honor band or community group.
In the words of Shia LaBeouf (or Nike), the only way to reach your dreams is to
"JUST DO IT!"
(Yeah, that is definitely Shia LaBeouf).
