Musical prodigy Ray Ushikubo emulated what he saw on television and, contrary to what you might fear, discovered his passion. At 5 years old, with the help of supportive parents, he found his calling. Are there days he doesn’t want to practice? Of course. But, he practices without fail and is fast approaching the theoretical 10,000 hours of study to reach virtuosity. Ushikubo is already well on his way. Find out what it takes to go so far, so fast, so young. This young man has advice we can all learn from. 

Lessons:

  1. To alleviate anxiety, focus 100 percent on the task.
  2. Many times when setting out to accomplish a big task it’s beneficial not to know what exactly you’re getting into.
  3. An appreciative audience is a great motivator.
