We all know learning to play an instrument can be hard… But it is also an enriching process which can make you really really happy. We just started a new year, so what a better moment to set goals? Here you have our 6 favorite tips to help you get better results in music practice this 2021!
1. Regularity is key
They say you need 21 days to create a habit. It is better to play for 15 min every day than for 5 hours straight once a week. Developing a routine is the key to good practice and progress.
2. Plan your practice
Scheduling your practice time will help you focus and will avoid distractions. Organization is always the way to go!
3. Play with others
Go to that jam, meet new musicians and you’ll find music more satisfying. You’ll have more fun, learn from other people, and apply what you studied.
4. Listen to more music
That may seem obvious… But remember that listening is learning. Try and actively listen to different genres and musicians! It will really expand your knowledge.
5. Compose some tunes
Even if you aren’t going to play it in public, try to compose little pieces as an exercise. You will apply what you’ve learned in a creative way! And if you don’t know how to write music down, we can always help you 😉
6. Be gentle with yourself
Learning an instrument takes time, don’t give up if something is too difficult at first. Don’t be too hard on yourself, set achievable goals, and have FUN!
