Randy Stein Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 (edited) Recently a new student related to me their difficulty with practicing. In their case it had primarily to do with time management and focus. This person said more than once of "trying to get through practicing." After some discussion we agreed to focus on learning and practicing arpeggios for fingering and working on only one or two pieces of music at a time. The very first chapter of the book Best Practice by my friend Judy Minot is her discussion of "Practicing" is a practice." Playing and practicing any musical instrument, in spite of frustrations, should always be a joyful experience. To quote Judy in her book, "Practicing is not something you need to " get through" to get to the good part. Instead, begin thinking of practicing as a practice, an activity you engage for it's own sake." Edited February 26 by Randy Stein 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
