Listen to the Story


Once upon a time, there was a boy named John. He wanted to learn how to play the guitar. He went to his father and asked him to teach him how to play. His father told him that practice makes perfect. So every day, John would practice playing the guitar. He would play for hours and hours, even when his fingers hurt. Sometimes he would get frustrated because he couldn't get a certain chord right, but he kept practicing. Months went by, and John's playing improved. His chords were cleaner, and he could strum faster. He played for his family and friends, and they were all impressed. Eventually, John joined a band and played in front of larger audiences. He became an amazing guitar player, and people loved to listen to him play. John knew that it was his hard work and practice that made him so good. So remember, like John, practice makes perfect.
