Often after a relaxing summer, we take on too much in September and by the end of the month — we’re ready for another vacation.
So what to do when this happens and our music is suffering as a result
1. Look at what you are doing? Is all these extra curriculum activities actually helping you? Or was just a cool idea at the time?
2. Take a look at your schedule and see if you’re getting enough time relax. Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Playing hooky isn’t always a bad thing, it’s a reward. M
3. Are you practicing too much? Often we think if we just practice a lot more than we normal do – we’ll do better. Instead, make sure that you’re focused or as one of my old professors called it “being in the zone” are you conscious of what you’re practicing or just going through the motions?
4. A lot of people find having a work out buddy will make them work out regularly. You can totally do this with practicing. Maybe you can text each other to check up on each other or maybe play/sing for each other and help each other on difficult sections
5. Sit down with your music teacher and see how s/he can help you. We’re to help you find success.
