3 Simple Steps to a Productive Practice Routine
3 steps to productive practice Time in the practice room doesn’t equal improvement. Hey, wait a second… That’s right, you read that correctly. It’s time spent practicing the right things that leads to improvement. And this isn’t always the case with most players’ routines, especially when it comes to jazz improvisation… There’s a well-loved myth out there that if you practice, practice, practice you’re going to reach your goals as a musician. You’ll perform at Carnegie Hall and gain the praise of the musicians around you. All because you put yourself in a practice room with your instrument. But is this accurate? The painful truth is that there are many musicians out there practicing like maniacs, spending multiple hours of the day locked in a practice room… And who nonetheless are still struggling to achieve their basic musical goals. Don’t let this be you. Here are 3 simple steps to improving the productivity of your practice routine starting today: Step 1: Avoid bad practice You know the feeling… You’re in the practice room and nothing seems to be working. You can’t get your sound locked in, you keep flubbing the same fingering in that line, and you don’t know what to play over that chord. But you’re determined to keep plowing ahead, no matter what. One more time through that etude, one more push for those high notes, and another run through that tricky chord progression. You’ve got to finish and you’re on the verge of frustration… Sound familiar? This is where bad practice begins. … Read More Read related articles Time to Overhaul Your Practice Routine Repetition: The Missing Link to Your Success Time Management for the Improviser How to Fight Bad Habits When Practicing Improvisation 3 Keys to Effective Practice
