How often do you practice?September 30, 2012 9:48 pm Think About It
So, how often do you practice? I know of some musicians who practice 6 to 8 hours a day and others who practice 6 to 8 minutes a week. You would agree that practice makes better, right? Sometimes it’s not just about the time you put in, but the quality of what you practice. It’s good to go over exercises, songs and techniques until you get them accurate and at a good pace. Make it your aim to put in a little more time than you have been to practice. You’ll see the difference!
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a general practice scale based on how often you practice? Let me know what you think about the one below and how I can tweak it to be a helpful tool. On a scale from 1 to 5:
1 = Up to 1 hour a week or 10 minutes a day
2 = Up to 2 hours a week or 20 minutes a day
3 = Up to 3 hours a week or 30 minutes a day
4 = Up to 6 hours a week or 1 hour a day
5 = Over 6 hours a week or over 1 hour a day
What do you think?
