Olympic Music or Olympics without Music

Olympic Music - Can you imagine the Olympics without Olympic Music?  Without the music - the opening ceremonies would not have the same climax, the skaters would not express themselves with the same delight. Olympic Music is the soul of emotion that brings the crescendo of excitement to the games. What does it take for a musician to create Olympic Music and become an “Olympic Musician"?

Seriously... we need to start a new category - OLYMPIC MUSIC - let the Music Games begin!  Musicians are truly athletes of a very special kind.

Please add your thoughts on Olympic Music Games at the bottom of the blog...

Not only do musicians require physical strength, mental preparation and emotional depth of expression, but working towards our goals - including creating Olympic Music - begins with three powerful words. The first word is DESIRE.


One must first have a DESIRE to become a musician.  Sometimes we are motivated by someone we admire and want to emulate that person. What can help us fulfill our desire to become a great musician?

  • Goal Setting: As with all athletes we must set goals, however big or small, outlining what we want to accomplish. Why do you want to play an instrument or sing?  Setting goals is the greatest motivation for achievement. That’s why athletes train so hard for the Olympics.  Because it’s a personal goal, it's a challenge, and it’s fun.

Become an Olympic Musical Athlete - Begin with a Goal - And work towards completing that goal every day of the Winter (Musical) Olympics.

Gold - you met, achieved and exceeded your goal every day.
Silver - you met and achieved your goal every day.

Olympic Music - Music Theory App"Last Saturday my 8 year old student started to cry at the piano lesson because he just couldn't clap a rhythm in the sight reading book - nothing I said could console him! Then I remembered reading your email about a student who had a bad day! I quickly brought out the iPad and clicked on your Music Theory App. His face lit up and we were able to finish the lesson on a good note!"
