Dear Musician: Musical Resolutions

Can 105,000 musicians be wrong?


by Dendy Jarrett



know it sounds crazy, but the years seem to move by faster as we navigate life. Each year we set goals (and for musicians – musical goals) with good intentions; but, for many, the road of good intentions doesn’t lead to anywhere.


2017 saw a host of great goals being met for Harmony Central. This newsletter, Make Better Music, now exceeds 105,000 subscribers. This also means some of you (along with us) hit your 2017 musical resolution – to make better music. We’re glad you made us part of your resolution.


Taking a look back, Harmony Central produced an incredible amount of material in 2017. For Articles, we published 170. That’s One Hundred Seventy! In the Expert Review category, we published 100 (One Hundred!) product reviews. And we published 26 issues of Make Better Music.


I’ve included links to all 26 Editions in case you missed one:

While we believe that looking out the front window of the band bus is the way to approach life, we do also believe that taking a look in the rear view mirror can help one keep balance and perspective.


As we ring in 2018, let’s remember all the musicians who left us in 2017 (it was a heavy blow to music this year) and let’s be thankful for the things we did accomplish.

Harmony Central hopes to continue to turn out great content and improve our newsletter.

Unlike many other newsletters, we don’t include tabloid style advertising; rather, we keep all of our supporters music instrument or music industry specific. No one needs reminders of what you shopped for on Amazon yesterday!

In return we ask that you support us. Click an ad, share Harmony Central with a friend, share Make Better Music’s Subscription link with a fellow musician, and, finally, find us and like us on Facebook. We’d be grateful.


So, as you face 2018, do so with a musical resolution in mind. Practice more, perform more, turn off a device and pick up an instrument, and above all … make better music.  -HC-
