2009 Mega Agent Program - Inspiring Music and Story of Tommy Emmanuel
If you haven't seen any of the guest speakers at a Mega Agent Camp, you are really missing out. These strong and passionate individuals will provoke thought and pull at both your heart and your mind. After listening to these speakers, there is but one single conclusion - "The only thing holding you back is you."
Meet Tommy Emmanuel
Tommy Emmanuel is a two-time Grammy nominee with a music career that spans almost four decades. At age 4, he learned to play the guitar without any formal training. By age 6, he was a professional musician touring his native Australia. Since then, he has toured the world entertaining crowds with his distinct musical style and sound. Not bad - considering he never learned how to read music.
Just Do It - Start Today
Tommy Emmanuel entertained the crowd with his music. However, one comment resonated with me. He commented on questions often received from parents as to how to get their child started in the music world. His advice was simple - play and practice. He also stressed the importance of challenging yourself and developing your own style. However, he commented further. He explained that you can't expect to pick up a guitar and play like him when it took him over thirty years to perfect his craft. From his comments, I took away three tips:
- Set reasonable expectations.
- Practice your skills.
- Challenge yourself by expanding your abilities.
You simply can't say I want to play like him. You have to practice and build your skills. Sometimes, it is important to think big but start small.
