I didn't know if I wanted to call this video, "My 5-minute slow practicing trick!" because I feel like it's a little too click-baity. I don't make click-bait-worthy videos, lol. It's really just a random private flute teacher rambling about her teaching epiphanies.
I'm still super excited to share this "trick" with you guys. It's not so much a trick as much as a way to set a concrete and realistic time frame for your practice sessions. These days, this type of practicing really isn't all that natural or normal anymore. I've realized now that instead of assuming that students know they should be practicing this way, it's up to me as their teacher to train them to sink into that meditative state of practicing. I don't think it's much different from a martial arts teacher who teaches students to slow down and work on their accuracy. I figured I could do the same!
I hope this is helpful and at least interesting to y'all. Love you guys a lot, happy practicing!
