Hamed Nikpay wedding anniversary

I recall people telling me early on learning to read and write music would hurt my playing. While I was skeptical (my impulse was to learn as much as I could about music), it was easy to use this as an excuse for laziness. So, I put off becoming literate as a musician until I was almost twenty-five. I won’t berate myself over this because the important thing is I did become literate. The ability to read and write music has opened incredible opportunities for me ever since and is crucial to my career.
