You do have a practice plan, right? It’s one of the most important tools for any musician.
But what do you put on your practice plan?
Here’s the challenge: you list the important basics, the cool playing techniques, all the styles you’d like to get into, the tunes to master…
You put everything on your plan and you end up with a gargantuan practice schedule that’s totally impractical and even counterproductive.Why?
Because it’s not sustainable.
You have a life to live. There’s family, friends, social activities, work (best case scenario in music), other hobbies. You have responsibilities and commitments that prevent you from practicing 24/7.
So basically there’s a limited amount of time available and a seemingly unlimited amount of material to practice.
