People say that ear for music comes to you when you born. Or not. Some wise guy told, that you can practice that like other skills. I donít think so.
When I was kid, I wanted to learn play something and I took violin. Thinking afterwards focusing to other hobbies like sports would be better idea. But if child wants to play violin, he must play violin.
I didnít have good genes for music. When I was kid, I saw my daddyís school diploma Ė he was very good in almost all. Excellent grades in almost all Ė but not in music. It was much worse than others.
But I started playing violin and start was good. But then my teacher started asking big things: I should have ear for music and hear when sound is right and when itís not. Too hard for me. If I moved my finger one millimeter, I heard no difference.
Last thing was playing in schoolís spring party. I should play with other guy who was playing piano. And that was total disaster in front of hundreds of people. So I quit playing piano and started playing basket ball.
