Music and Me
Most people can recall some music from their childhood and for me music was a very strong influencer in my life. My Dad loved music and was a singer in his younger years and I have memories of sitting there listening to The Who with him, my Mum loves music too and it was a family tradition to play music on a Sunday afternoon.
My first formal training in music was in my early teens where I learned the flute initially at Secondary School, this then changed to me learning the alto saxophone later on – which I succeeded with and became an accomplished musician gaining my qualifications and winning awards. You will see in my novels that I have had an on and off relationship with music but it has always been there. I remember my Dad often say “music will bite you again in the future” and it did.
I have started playing again and it is wonderful. Performing makes me feel like a centrifuge of activity that wants to explode, learning a new song is like falling in love and the warmth that it gives you.
What are your creative hobbies and how do they make you feel?
I use music often in my coaching as it is a way of determining your mindset and allowing free flowing thoughts to come about for you to grow. I really feel I have accomplished something when someone’s music changes over the sessions.
In the near future I am running a course that will encompass this and allow you to express yourself as a creative – if you would like further information please like this post.
