RDV Practice Tips: -A Good Plan is Better Than Good Intentions

Your Practice Tips Are Here!
Dear -,
One of my biggest mistakes as a violin student was the belief that the number of hours practiced was exactly proportional to the level of success I would attain.

And isn’t this true? Not exactly!  If the practice is not done correctly, with focus, efficiency, and effectiveness, then it will not yield measurable results.

If we decide to practice 4 hours per day but we don’t have a plan or goals or strategies to guide us, then we will simply squander our 4 hours and have nothing to show.

One of the best things you can do is to learn how to develop a practice plan.

  • Keep it simple. (we don’t’ want to spend more time planning than we spend practicing!)
  • List 2 or 3 techniques you need to focus primarily on.
  • List 2 or 3 tunes, etudes, or scales that you need to prepare.
  • Include a budget of the time you will spend.

Then respect your plan. Follow your budget. Trust yourself.

To help you get started, I’m giving you a basic practice plan template. (click here). And here’s a video I did just for you, discussing how to use it.

Keep what you like, change what you don’t like. (Page 17-18 of your Ultimate Guide also discusses practice plans)


Talk to you again soon!
