Has the internet changed the way you learn music?

When I started learning to play the guitar it was all from LP records, and I had a (relative to what's available now) limited selection. It seems like there is an information overload now. How do you filter it all? Do you take lessons from a teacher online? Do you learn from YouTube videos?

This is a great question.

The internet has for sure changed the way that I learn and teach music.  It is really amazing how much information is now available on almost every instrument and song.

This does however create a new problem which is overload.   I think the key is to find the right teacher and or system that works for you.  Just searching videos lessons endlessly is a big waste of time.  

I also think that having the right practice skills is the key to learning on any platform, because the information is the information and how you put it into action is what helps you develop.

I created a free video that I send to all my students about how to get setup for long term practice success.
