Practicing to get better!

iMusicAcademy,
I just wanted to share a few thoughts about managing your practice time. Practicing the piano can be an overwhelming task if we don’t have specific goals in mind. There can be so much to think about that we can actually practice but not get anything accomplished. Should we learn scales, arpeggios, chords, improvisation, learn songs, or sightread music? This answer is Yes, but we have to have long term as well as short term goals. I believe the best thing we can do is to think of specific short term goals and do them daily. Get a notebook! write out the plan for the day, and make it a realistic goal. For instance, take this example from Blues volume 3. Learn it and really focus in. If you are more experienced, try to play it in different keys. Once you do this and check it off the list, you will build confidence. The more we focus in on our practice time the better we get at music, and at practicing. The result is that you get better faster with more enjoyment! So, have fun with this example and get something done today!
Sincerely,
Bob Taylor
