What's the best way to improve my writing?
The short answer to the question of how to improve your writing is to do just that - write! This goes hand-in-hand with reading as much as you can, and reading a variety of materials. Many people keep some kind of journal for writing. This writing can take many forms, and may just be a way to jot down brief thoughts or phrases. However, at some point, take those ideas and expand on them. Some people suggest pre-thinking what you want to say, while others say just start writing. Many people do start with some kind of outline in mind. The main point is to write down that first draft. Then, the most important thing is to go back and edit! Use the skills you have learned to look for an unclear message or errors in grammar rules, etc. Always reread what you have written.

Why can't I get better grades?
You can create positive outcomes and improve your success in school by learning strategies that help with goal setting and motivation. Successful students are not just natural learners. They have also worked at building habits around organizing materials and time, as well as developing skills and tips for memorizing, studying and note-taking. These skills can be learned!
Is it true that anyone can be musical?
Yes, anyone can be musical and enjoy music in many different ways. Everyone carries a tune and it's never too late to learn some specific skills to enjoy making music, from simple singing to more advanced instrument playing. Many music technologies also offer other avenues to inspiring and satisfying music making.
