New Year’s Music Resolutions To Make

by

With a new year soon underway, now is the best time to make a fresh start in all aspects of your life. With all the cliché resolutions that pop up every year for most people, such as losing weight or taking up a hobby, making a different promise to yourself could prove to be worthwhile. So this year, choose instead to make some musical resolutions.

1) Listen to a different genre

Maybe you’re a hardcore metal head or bubblegum pop devotee. Try mixing things up this year by listening to a genre you swore off or haven’t even tried. Check out some country-pop crossovers such as Carrie Underwood or Lady Antebellum to ease the transition to country music, or put on some Broadway show tunes.

2) Learn to play an instrument

Being an audiophile is one thing, but learning to play a musical instrument adds a whole new level to music devotion. Piano and guitar are popular and fairly easy to pick up (for those of you who can’t sing)—plus, learning an instrument can help improve memory and hand-eye coordination.

3) Discover new groups/musicians

One of the great things about music is that new artists are being discovered every day. Ask friends for music recommendations, go to concerts or events in your city, or simply browse through a record store or online and pick a random band to listen to. Music is all about finding and trying new things; so don’t be afraid to try something different.
