Steve,
Looking for a music stand to lay flat and hold my laptop for some of the video lessons in my "practice" area. You've discussed in the past, but any updates to review?

Steve's Learning Tips

 

 

1) Set aside a specific time or time of day to practice. 

          It doesn’t need to be a lot of time – but it does need to be CONSISTENT.

 

CONSISTENCY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN QUANTITY

 

2) Select a time when your mind is FRESH.

 

QUALITY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN QUANTITY

 

It’s not quantity of minutes that matters – it’s the quality of the minutes that you do put into it.

 

3) 20 Minutes of focused practice time for 6 days out of the week. (120 minutes total)

 

4) Get a metronome. 

 

5) Get a journal and write down your progress.  (It’s the only way to measure some things.)  SHOW HOW TO USE A METRONOME

 

6) Get a good music stand.

 

7) Prepare an area to learn.

 

8) When you practice, BE RELAXED – Your mind learns better when not under pressure.

 

9) When you practice, BE FOCUSED.  Ruthlessly eliminate distrations.

 

10) Keep Learning Materials close by – Books, Guitar, Metronome, Pencil.

 

11) Get a Learning Buddy.
