I'm an electronics technician for a small company.
I've been playing guitar for awhile. I just finished taking 3 years of jazz lessons. I also teach guitar lessons on the weekend in order to share what I've learned with others. Nothing comes close to the thrill of taking a new student and watching them progress to become a skilled musician.
I started taking classical piano lessons about a year and a half ago. Because I already know theory and how to play the guitar, my instructor had me skip several of the lesson books. I'm often asked which is harder to learn - guitar or piano? The answer is piano. Learning to play using all 10 fingers AND read music at the same time is a lot more difficult than playing guitar. Will learning to play one instrument help you to learn another? You bet it will and I highly recommend it.
