The belief that music is something you should only pursue when it’s fun, and then quitting when the going gets tough, really bothers me. But on the other hand, simply playing music as a path to success, and not because you love it, is also problematic.
But while all that extra time and opportunity can certainly help musicians learn to home record, produce, and mix, it might set us off with some bad time management habits if we’re not careful. Sometimes having too much time, or too much choice in terms of what instruments or sounds to use can debilitate our focus and our sense of making the most out of our studio hours. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
