I have been encouraged by my family and classmates to improve my Guitar playing. This past term in Fenn, I took beginning guitar as my Art class. At first, I took the class to get an "Easy A." After a few weeks, it was more than that. I developed a passion for it. I was good at it too. Though, after beginning guitar ended, I did not feel the same drive to play and practice as I did before. My mom saw my talent and was insistent of me practicing. Once I was not being rewarded for my efforts, (getting a good grade in guitar) I did not want to play. Then my mom made me realize that not everyone has a talent in everything. And if you find something that you are good at, stick with it, because others do not have the same chance. That was a very god point that my mother made and it inspired me to keep with the guitar. Now, I can fluently play several different songs and counting! I am glad that my mom taught me that valuable lesson. And who knows? I may be a musician one day and I have my mom to thank for that.
