Some of the finest relationships in my life have been mentorships--both as the mentor and the protégée. The potential for all kinds of quality learning is almost limitless in a well-developed mentorship. Social skills, hands-on skills, theory--can all be enhanced and personalized by a mentor. Accountability and motivation are also increased by such a relationship.
But don't take my word for it; check out what your peers have to say:
"Kristiana (my cousin) gave me lots of tips and instructions that helped solidify what I had seen on tutorials. I realized that there is only so much you can learn from a video, eventually you need someone to answer your questions and talk you through it... She's a great example for me of someone who has excelled in their instrument because of the time and effort she has put into it."

"One thing that has become very clear to me recently is the importance of having someone who has a lot of knowledge of what you're learning and knows what they are talking about. Whether it's an instrument or really anything else... Daniel was able to give pointers to a few different people...who had been playing a lot longer than me. Some had even learnt lies from the internet just like me. Luckily Daniel was there to correct them and even luckier, he'll always be there to correct me. His knowledge and natural musical talent will be very crucial in the success of my passion project."
