Often described as the universal language, music is certainly enjoyable and adds wonder to our otherwise dull life.
To develop the skill of rendering music is one of my greatest dreams. Imagine how enchanting it would be to be able to express oneself in tunes and melodies, and how fulfilling it is to be part of the love music radiates. Belonging to the same family tree as the Kundiman composer Nicanor Abelardo, I guess the love for music really runs in the blood.
During my sophomore year, I have chosen the friendliest instrument of all, the guitar. Perhaps it is the easiest one to play. Besides, I prefer the soothing and meticulous sound of string instruments. However, though I love my guitar, it is the piano I’ve always desired to play even if it has proven itself to be such an elusive ambition.
No matter how rewarding it is to be a [insert instrument here]-ist, learning to play an instrument beautifully has never been a breeze. One must face the challenges tedious practicing and studying entail, namely discipline and diligence. But as for me, I don’t want to give up on this pursuit just yet. After all, if you love what you do, you will find it pleasurable despite being difficult.
How about you, among the various musical instruments there are, which one do you find most appealing to the senses? Would you take the challenge of learning to play one or have you succeeded already? 🙂
