I’ve met a lot of people who say they want to write songs or learn an instrument but they never do it.
So many people are struggling to just start—and I haven’t found a solid resource to help them take that first step that builds momentum towards their goals.
So I decided to build it.
tuneboat is designed for people who want to make music, but don’t know where to start.
Music is a universal language. No matter who you are, you can communicate with anyone in the world through music.
It’s a beautiful, mysterious, and powerful thing. It’s difficult to explain how music makes us feel sometimes—when words fall short, music fills the silence.
Everyone has the ability to learn to play and write music. For some people, it comes more naturally, and for others, it takes more time—but everyone can learn it.
You might be just starting your journey with music, or maybe you’re coming back to it after putting it on hold for many years, whatever the case, you’re ready to START.
Why I Want to Help You.
Since I was a young kid I always had an interest in learning to play drums. When I was 14 I finally saved up and purchased my very own drum set—it was an exciting day!
The guy I bought it from wanted to go to a good home, and I was happy to provide that home for it.
I set it up and started beating away at it—I thought it’d be easier. I was a little disappointed with how difficult playing drums actually is.
Instead of giving up I just practiced almost every day.
With the insights and support of other musicians and friends, I persisted at learning drums, and year by year I slowly got better.
I still play drums almost every day and they are one of my favorite instruments.
Maybe you’re like I was as a kid—you want to learn music but you’re frustrated with how difficult it is to learn.
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to be discouraged and doubt if I’ll ever improve.
It took some time, but I made it through, and now I want to help you do the same. I want you to experience the joy of playing and writing music—because there’s nothing like it.
We All Need Encouragement.
I used to teach guitar lessons, and one thing I noticed is that even though my students could go pick up their guitar at home and teach themselves, most of them didn’t.
They could learn how to play guitar without me, but their passion to learn guitar without encouragement and support wasn’t strong enough for them to actually sit down and practice.
They attended lessons with me not because they needed information about how to play the guitar, but because they needed encouragement and support to take action and be consistent.
In the same way, I’m here to encourage and support you. I know you can find a lot of information about learning to play, write, and record music online, but it can be difficult to find someone to cheer you on while you learn.
I want to be your cheerleader.
What is your biggest challenge with learning music right now?
