Today, I just want to share a quick perspective on your music education.
You Don’t Have to Read, Just Listen
Many people get caught up in reading other people’s opinion or the written rules of music. Instead of trying to read your way into music genius, simply listen. Listen to hit songs. Point out what’s special in the song. Listen to songs you haven’t heard before to expand your musical references.
You won’t realize it, but listening to those songs will give you reference riffs and other musical techniques which you can apply to your creations. You will even add them to your songs without being aware of it.
