How often do you find yourself needing more practice time but just can’t find a way to get it in?
We are literally so busy that it can seem impossible to make changes to your practicing to really get the results you are after in your piano playing.
Today we’re going to learn how to get more practicing done but in the same amount of time that we’re already practicing in…so you won’t have to add in any extra time if you can’t right now.
Each of the tips that we’re going to list here will be discussed in the video at the end so you can see at the piano how to do each of them yourself.
The first thing that you want to do is make and objective practice list of what you want and need to accomplish in your practice session.
Second, spend time on what you aren’t good at…not what you are good at!
Third and maybe most importantly is to make yourself sight read and try to do it every day.
Next, we’re going to talk about intervals and how learning to read the intervals in your piano music makes everything go faster.
Work on harder sections by themselves instead of trying to work on them within the context of the whole piece.
Establish a set time for your practicing by setting a timer and do nothing but practice during that time that the timer is on.
Include scales in your practicing as much as you can.
Learn your key signatures, time signatures and other music theory items.
Try incorporating a few of these tips each week into your practice routine. Don’t practice any longer unless you really have the time to. Start with establishing a few good and easy goals for the first week and then just keep going!
Enjoy going over these tips with me at your own piano and learn how much they can help you maximize your piano practice results!
