Become a 'Music Mentor'

Ever had 'one of those days' when everything goes wrong? Then, you show up for a gig or an open mic, you take the stage and all of the days woes melt away?

Wouldn't it be great if you could share that wonderful feeling with others? Well, now you can!

Just reach out to a friend, co-worker, or relative and become their 'music mentor.' It's actually very easy to do. Here are some tips.

- Find out if your friends has ever played an instrument or been in a band.
- If they are an experienced, but dormant player, invite them to attend an open mic with you.
- If they don't have any musical experience, bring them to an open mic and then offer to 'get them started.'
- Offer to show them a few chords on guitar or keys and get them playing a few songs quickly.
- Get them on stage at an open mic as soon as possible.

The joy of music-making is something that all musicians can share with others. Just reach-out to one-person.

You may change their life forever.
