Practice with purpose:

Establishing a practice routine is super important!  Here is an example:

  1. Tune up!
  2. Warm up!
  3. Play
  4. Work on something new
  5. Play!  remember, learning an instrument is FUN!  It’s a great way to relax.  It sure beats watching TV all the time!

The length of each of these items is totally up to you…  I play everyday, but only get to practice a few times a week (mostly learning new instruments!) It is important to maximize you practice time!
