Today I bring a different point of view of music, which is, the teaching and learning. Many people tend to think that everyone can just grab a guitar, get together with some friends and have a go at music. But being able to play well an instrument and compose a beautiful tune is more than that. You need to be properly trained and to know the fundamentals of music theory.
However, not everyone has the time or money to attend to an university and get their college degree.
