    is there any mistake?

    The main aim of our music club is to help students play music by feeling all features of music instruments.
    We aim to develop students music skills not only by the basics of music theory, but also by practice.
    If you see a group of students with guitar, you can realize that they are students of our club.

    Thanks in advance

    1) These words sound awkward to me, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean to say. (?) feeling = getting to know (?) features = aspects (?) But if you leave them as they are, it's not terrible!

    2) Usually, "by" is followed by a gerund, for example:
    ... not only by studying the basics of music theory, but also by practicing.
    I'm not sure that it's a true grammatical error, but I think "by practice" sounds wrong!
