Not gonna lie, it took me a long time to come up with this week's title, haha! It was a lot of, "Don't fight yourself in the practice room...? Practicing for Practical People...? Uhhhhhhhh......." XD
I've noticed that across the board, it's been absolute madness for all of my students' schedules (mine too!). I even had an entire day when every single student had prepared a little spiel to update me on why they hadn't practiced as much as they would have liked!
The truth is, I never can find it within myself to get upset at students for not practicing... because that was me too. So I've started to just walk my students through how I survived my insane seasons when I couldn't practice much at all. The best part is hearing how much they improve by the next lesson after they had tried out my ideas!! And it's usually on either the same amount or even less practice time than before!
So, my friends, it IS possible to practice efficiently enough that you know that even just a literal couple of minutes is enough to help you stay "practiced". If I can do it, you can too! ^_^
