Instrument You Didn’t Know AboutAugust 1, 2012
Don’t be surprised that it takes a while to learn how to dance. It’s like learning how to play an instrument. In this case the instrument is your body.
Go ahead pick up a guitar or any instrument you never held in your hands before and see what a beautiful melody you’ll create first time around. Not so beautiful huh? That’s because before you create something ear pleasing you need to spend time learning guitar anatomy, major/minor scales, major/minor triads, chords, picking techniques as well as work on hand eye coordination and form.
Learning how to use your body is just as complicated. You have body control, coordination, range of movement, mind-body connection, rhythm retention and all of it has to be developed. It will take time but trust me – it’s worth it.
