Deliberate Practice

Practicing hours a day can be tedious. And disengaged practice isn’t helpful. Thus, serious musicians all have little tricks to help them stay engaged for so much time.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to take breaks when your concentration fades. Breaks can be as simple as standing up and taking a sip of water. As long as you’re taking a step back and making sure you’re body’s still relaxed.

I have a few quotes on the wall above my piano to inspire me. This one by poet James Russell Lowell reminds me what practice should look like.

Practice is your time to explore safely. And if you’re up for it, you could discover a new world in your music.

Happy practicing!
