Strategies for Artists to Become Self-Guided Learners

The greatest skill one can develop as an artist is the ability to build knowledge and develop insight on your own. We gain this through our personal practice, experience, and experimentation. Yet, most of us aren't particularly good at learning new things on our own. And in such a crowded landscape filled with "how to" videos and "experts," we find ourselves distracted with no clear path towards our goal. Join the Soundfly Team as they explore and share science-based strategies to learn more effectively on your own, so you’re prepared to take on any new skill or challenge with clarity and insight.
