All musicians, regardless of level or instrument, can learn to get the most from your practice time with these research-based strategies.
No matter where you are on your musical path - beginner or pro - your creative output will hinge on your knack for carving out practice time and using it productively. This session is intended for all musicians regardless of level or instrument. We are all told from our very first lessons on an instrument that we should practice daily but exactly how should we organize our practice time to ensure that we continually propel ourselves forward on our chosen instrument?
In this newly revised session, we will look at how we learn and discuss research-based strategies for learning new material in a deeper, more efficient manner, improving memorization, and performing more confidently. We’ll talk about ‘Deliberate Practice’, the myth of both ‘natural talent’ and the ‘10,000-hour rule’, the importance of goal setting and strategies for creating practice habits that stick. We’ll learn a variety of ‘practice hacks’ to help speed up the learning process, and things we can do away from our instruments that help to keep us moving forward. Finally, we’ll talk about the best way(s) to set up our practice space and for organize the tunes, technique & skills for musicianship in the best way to maximize results with minimal effort. Practice strategies, logs and pre-performance timelines and inventories will be presented and discussed.
For all instruments.
