I find like most Musicians that daily Practice is key in becoming a well rounded player. Im finding that concerning practice every one is different. It is seed that Joe Pass at the height of his carer practiced only one hour a day where is Al Dimeola practiced for eight, Joe Pass could crush Al D despite the thousands of hours less practice and the 30 year carer gap? Here are some tips on being a healthy musician.
-listen to music
-listen to people you admire
-listen to players who might even play a different instrument for ideas.
-Keep your practice space free of distractions(TV)
-Practice in small segments to keep it interesting
-If you begin to play sloppy slow down, if it hurts stop!
-JAM!! Most likely the hardest and most important type of practice possible jaming with other musicians(especially for the young or beginner) will teach you more then any teacher or DVD.
Sorry for being a bit long-winded but now i would like to here how Montana practices and what tips tricks and general advice do you have? From the beginner to the virtuoso help Montana musicians reach their dreams. Feel free to respond to the question in the first paragraph.
Rock on !!!
