Dogs play piano!
If you’re one of those people who say something like: “I’d like to play music, but I don’t have any rhythm” then watch this video. Not to take anything away from the intelligence of dogs, but if they can do it then so can you! I’m not saying that you have what it takes to perform on the world’s biggest stages just because these dogs can recite what they hear, but I do think that if dogs can do this then you can learn fundamental musical proficiency on one instrument or another. I know that there are many people who have always wanted to learn guitar, or learn piano, or some other instrument but have avoided it day after day because they fear that the learning curve is just too steep. There will always be professionals that take any and all subjects to the highest levels but you don’t have to be the best to enjoy yourself and you don’t have to be the best to be really good. All you need to do is pick your musical instrument and dedicate some time for learning. I’ve seen some people make outstanding progress by dedication 20-30 minutes daily. Seriously, just 20-30 minutes daily. Just cut out 20-30 minutes of CNN or ESPN and you’ve made enough time for your music practice. I can promise you also that you won’t miss anything, news stations repeat the same information every 15 minutes anyhow.
