MEET THE DOKIC FAMILY!

STEFAN - 9

Instruments played:  piano, guitar, and recorder.  Favorite band: AC/DC, Favorite song: “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons

What Stefan likes most about music lessons is simply the style of teaching from his instructor Travis that makes learning music fun.  He practices his piano 5 times/week with the support of his musical parents, and wants to play well enough to be in a band in college, then simply enjoy music with friends later in life. When asked how music can change the world, Stefan says that “you can communicate with music to different people”.  When he is not making music in his spare time, Stefan likes “messing around with his friends” and building Legos.

LUCAS - 7

Instruments played: piano, drums, guitar.  Favorite band: Blue Man Group, Favorite song: “Paradise City” by Guns N’ Roses

Lucas says that during music lessons he simply loves learning, and he thinks his instructor Travis is so nice to him because he is making him into a great musician.  He likes to practice “on the weekends because we don’t have school and I don’t get double stressed”.   Lucas would like to be a “rock and roll drummer” when he grows up!  When asked how music can change the world, Lucas says “It can make peace. It can relax people and make them forget about their worries.” - well said! Outside of music, Lucas enjoys playing dodgeball and football.

SARAH - (MOTHER)

Instruments played: currently learning piano, plus a little guitar experience.  Favorite artist: Josh Ritter, Favorite song: (Pretty much any song by Josh Ritter!) - “Homecoming”, “Kathleen”, “Bright Smile”, etc..

Sarah, who works as a Home Health Physical Therapist, enjoys the challenge that music gives her brain to grow as she learns.  She likes that music is something she does for herself and not anyone else, and that she is able to learn something new each time.  After dinner whens the rest of the family cleans the kitchen, Sarah enjoys playing the piano!  Music has always brought Sarah joy, and it’s a big part of her family (immediate and extended). Over holidays her extended family always plays music together and sings for hours after the big meal and it brings everyone from her 94 year old grandma to her 3 year old nephew together. She would like to be able to be able to play her instrument with other people.  When asked how music can change the world, Sarah says “It’s something that can bring all types of people together- it can bridge cultures and belief systems.  It is also a nice way to express feelings and spread messages in a less rhetorical way.”

In November of 2015 I had decided to really start learning how to play the Guitar after years of just knowing a few Chords and Rhythm and playing the same old stuff over and over, and through a business relationship I found out about Music Flow Teaching and little did I know at that time what a huge impact this was going to have on my life. My goal in the beginning was to learn how to Solo and not just copy or mimic what other Guitar players had done but be able to create my own solos, I was shocked at how quickly my Instructor was able to get the basic scales needed to start this process going, and how fast I was able to absorb these techniques and forms to get started on my journey to my Goal. Now that I have been doing this for over a year and a half it seems like every lesson just provides a quicker learning experience as I get more and more of the capabilities in my hand. I really like how my Instructor is able to adapt quickly and change from lesson to lesson to work on a technique or form instead of just sticking to some plan that someone else has developed. What I have learned since starting with Music Flow has affected my life in more ways than just music alone, it has reignited a passion that had been gone for a long time as I look so forward to getting home and playing everyday, it has also helped every other part of my life as well. I now seem to focus on task better and and pay more attention to detail than before I started on this journey. From the deepest part of my Heart I would like to just say Thank You Music Flow Teaching and I cant wait to see what the next year holds because if it is anything like the last year my advancement will be exponential.
