Are You Gonna Be My Girl Guitar Lesson
Hi I am a 13 year old girl. I’ve played piano since I was 5 but I’ve never had any passion for it. I do it because my mom made me and I hated every singles minute of it. Anyways, today I decided its enough. At the lesson my teacher said how I don’t care about music and stuff that hurts me. She asked why I don’t want to play piano and I told her I’m sorry I have no passion and I told her how my parents make me. I started crying and stuff and then she had a long talk with my mom. In the car my mom was disappointed but I told her how I felt. She wants me to play piano cause she wants me to have a skill so in 3 years when I need a job I can make it useful, like becoming a piano teacher. I understand that money is tight in our family, but that doesn’t mean I just have to keep playing piano to have money. I told her that I wanted to play something else, something I’m passionate about. I really don’t like piano. I feel like it’s a waste of time and I even cried when I talked to my mom about quitting. I’ve always wanted to play drums or guitar, so I told her that when she asked me what I wanted. What do you guys think? Am
I right? I need opinions. Should I pursue my dream, or just let my mom control my life and be in my personal hell? I know for sure I want to play the guitar cause I just love it. I have one and I even tried to teach myself how to play! It’s surprising cause I’m lazy to be honest. If I do play guitar/drums though, I don’t know what to decide. Guitar will hurt my fingers but I am willing to overlook that. I don’t know how to describe it I just love this instrument and the sound and everything about it. I know 110% I will love it. On the other hand, there’s drums. I know I will love it since my older brother played it and he taught me some stuff before he went to college and moved away. He’s in a band and he practices at his friend’s house so we don’t have drums, that’s the problem. Our house doesn’t have a garage so really I can’t practice. Also, my dad thinks drums is for boys but I’m sorry dad I get to choose about this. I’m leaning towards guitar, but again, I need opinions. Do you guys think I’m right? And should I do guitar? Thanks for the help.
