“You don't have to be an expert in something to be able to teach it to somebody else.”
— Jacques Hopkins

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Jacques Hopkins. Jacques worked as an engineer for eight years before quitting his job and turning his biggest hobby into a highly successful online piano course. Today, he supports his family with the passive income from his course, while teaching others to do the same.

I wanted to talk to Jacques because I also have a side-passion for learning an instrument, multiple instruments actually. Most recently, I have learned the piano, and thus I wanted to talk to Jacques about the importance of learning an instrument, but also from the perspective of someone who transitioned and brought music into his life.

I wanted him to share his insights with all of you as to why anyone and everyone can and should pick up a musical instrument. The conversation varied from how you can accelerate your learning of a specific instrument, the piano, to why music is important, why people should learn music, and how you don't have to be a musical person to learn an instrument.

In the episode, we also talk about the massive misconceptions and ways that most people go about learning music. I enjoyed the episode, it's a short and sweet one, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well!
