Another point should be discussed here; we should not put obstacles to the persons who are really interested in learning music. They might be insufficient in facilities and other features. No one should bother about that. Self interest is the main key to learn music. There are many examples to show the persons who were developed in music with lot of self interest. Beethoven is one among them; he is a well talented pianist and music composer in his days. We should learn many principles from him. We should incorporate these principles in our life otherwise it has no use in our life.
