Sometimes when we try new things, we struggle. Everyone knows what it feels like to be a beginner at something, and even though that feeling is natural, it’s often really embarrassing too. This is how Miriam feels when she starts to learn the saxophone and finds that in order to learn to make beautiful music, she has to make a lot of unflattering sounds first. So what gave her the motivation to keep practicing even though she was frustrated? Her motivation came from a story that her mother told her, a story that had been passed down through her family for a long time. And now, we’ll all get a chance to hear it! And hopefully, it’ll give you the inspiration to pick up your new quarantine hobby again.
