A guide to great music practice
How to make it efficient and productive
Music teachers and directors are very important for anybody who is trying to become a better musician, but teachers cannot make you a better musician; they can only tell you how to improve. The actual improvement, you have to do yourself, and mostly on your own time. Your private (or group) lesson time is the time that you show your teacher how you are doing at the moment, and the teacher will tell you what you need to work on next, and how to work on it. You don’t really have time to practice or improve during your lesson, only to get the insight into how to improve.
