There’s never a quiet moment on the music practice blogosphere these days Gone is the time a couple of years back when I could go for a couple of weeks without seeing anything related to music practice written.
That’s a good thing! Perhaps the message is finally getting out there
Here’s a selection from the last few weeks for your enjoyment:
- Always one to provide help for students and teachers Natalie at the Music Matters Blog provides some advice for Identifying problem spots.
- Gerald Klickstein discusses internal and external motivation as ways to be self motivated.
- More tips on how to practice scales from the Practice of Practice Blog.
- Getting There discusses something that many don’t consider practising – arrangement.
- In NLP circles much discussion is had around role modelling. Thomas J West discusses how this might be applied by musicians.
