But learning to be a good musician works the other way around, you only
learn it in front of an audience. But this could be just a bunch of
friends. Sure it'll scare you to death, but there is no way around. You
can rehearse all day at home, it won't make you a good musician. But if
you get out you will learn it...
Making music is about listening, not about doing. Listening in front of
an audience and trying to slip into their shoes and listen to your music
is the best way, as far as I know, to become a good musician...
Looking for other musicians to play with is a very good start. If you
play together, you're your own audience as well. Don't look for
virtuosos, just play with your friends, they'll learn along with you...
Just for refining techniques an experienced teacher might help, more so
if you play with her. But more likely later, if you come across
technical difficulties. To make music there is no obligation to solve
all technical difficulties by the way, but its easier in the end...
