Steve's Guidelines to Productive Practice

Recommended Posts

1) Set aside a specific time or time of day to practice. 

          It doesn’t need to be a lot of time – but it does need to be CONSISTENT.




2) Select a time when your mind is FRESH.




It’s not quantity of minutes that matters – it’s the quality of the minutes that you do put into it.


3) 20 Minutes of focused practice time for 6 days out of the week. (120 minutes total)


4) Get a metronome. 


5) Get a journal and write down your progress.  (It’s the only way to measure some things.)  SHOW HOW TO USE A METRONOME


6) Get a good music stand.


7) Prepare an area to learn.


8) When you practice, BE RELAXED – Your mind learns better when not under pressure.


9) When you practice, BE FOCUSED.  Ruthlessly eliminate distrations.


10) Keep Learning Materials close by – Books, Guitar, Metronome, Pencil.


11) Get a Learning Buddy.
