gestures need to be thought
Dear friend! More than once in your life there will come a moment when you want to drop everything and retreat. Once this happens and with the desire to continue playing music. What can be done in this situation?
WHY DOES THE INITIAL ENTUSISM DISAPPEAR? There was a time when you eagerly awaited the opportunity to pick up a tool and flew like wings on lessons, rejoicing at your successes. And suddenly something changed, something that was once so easy became a routine, and the need to allocate time for additional classes is an unpleasant duty that I want to get rid of. Remember that you are not alone in your feelings. Even great musicians passed through this. And most importantly, be honest with yourself. Answer for yourself: is there a problem in music? Or at the teacher? In the vast majority of cases this is not so. The fact is that you want to play more with friends and have fun, and do not want to work.

Alexey Viktorovich Zimakov was born on January 3, 1971. in the Siberian city of Tomsk. He is an outstanding Russian guitarist. A brilliant performer, an amazing virtuoso. It has extraordinary musicality, inaccessible technique and clean performance. Received recognition in Russia and abroad.
