HOW TO MOLD A MUSICAL MIND
Anyone can learn to play music, and learn to play it well.
Being able to play music is not about talent. It's not about aptitude.
Being about to play music is not about the brain you have, but the brain you build.
Each and every one of us has been gifted with a fully customizable brain, one we can mold to learn anything, at any age.
Yet, it doesn't come with a manual for how to make the most of that gift. Success or failures in learning to play music - or anything else - is driven by how we learn.
More specifically, it is driven by how well we engage our brain's remarkable ability to change itself.
The Laws of Brainjo is a compilation of articles about the fundamental principles of learning, an owner's manual for molding a musical mind. They are also the principles embedded into the Brainjo Method, a neuroscience-based system of instruction for learning to play music, at any age.
