Motivation out, Inspiration in
I can’t motivate anyone. But I can inspire! Motivation is the idea I can make someone like something they don’t. I can’t.
Inspiration on the other hand is the heart of education. An inspired learner is the joy of our profession.
As a drum student I watch YouTube video lessons each day. I read books and magazines on drumming. I play with others who play at my level, I practice, I take lessons, I have goals. You get the picture.

You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
