“Playing music with a Juilliard teacher is a strict sort of experience of music that’s precision-focused, that’s geared toward perfection. That angle on it is great for people who want mastery of the music, and I can understand how some people might be envious of that opportunity,” Wessen continued. But he also says that not having access to a top-level musical education is hardly a good reason to avoid learning a new instrument or taking your playing to the next level.
And if you need a little more motivation, think of making music as a sonic silver lining to the prolonged pandemic. “Music in general is like a long-term companion,” Wessen said. “It gives you relief and release and there’s just never been a better time to learn to play. And because the guitar is just this universal instrument, it’s probably the best one to pick up right now. Anywhere you go in the world, there’s a guitar leaning up against the world. The community of guitar players is really the whole world, and you can be connected through that music.”
Once you can travel again, that is. Which is something to look forward to soon. What’s Andrew Wessen looking forward to?
“Just getting out of this nightmare. Seeing an end coming is making me really excited, the idea of getting back into these venues, of playing together again, of having an audience there. And not just performing, I mean going to shows myself. It’s just going to be thrilling to get back to it for all of us.”
