Tips for the week of 11/11/13 – 11/17/13
Action trumps perfection.
The 20 minutes you did is better than the 90 minutes you didn’t do.
Don’t guess – Always use a metronome so you know where you’re going and how far you’ve come.
Improvise something every practice session.
Always practice with a plan:
The faster I can play, the slower I practice
Set limits/restrictions when practicing. 1 example: try improvising over your favorite changes using just quarter notes.
