Have you ever wanted to teach yourself a new instrument or musical skill but you’re not sure if it’s worth the effort?
In this episode, Jennifer is joined by Daniel Ho, a Grammy Award winning recording artist, producer, and instrument designer.

He shares why he thinks that’s so valuable and what it’s like to work in a wide range of genres.
