Finding practice time

melbourne trumpet lessons, finding practice time,

Father time where do you go? Why does the passing of the time seem to go quicker the busier we get? For Melbourne Trumpet players finding extra time in your daily routine to get practice in becomes a practice in time management. For our Melbourne trumpet students we often go through your practice diary and recommend amendments to make sure your progress is significant. One easy solution to finding extra practice time is simply to put down the TV remote and pick up your instrument. I do know the draw the television has and how relaxing it can be however the feeling of getting in some constructive practice is rewarding and relaxing. If you are lucky enough to have your meals prepared for you by a partner or parent rather than hovering around the kitchen like a nuisance I recommend taking those precious minutes and getting into your instrument practice. The key thing to take away here is that even a short 10min practice session can greatly improve your playing especially if it is focused practice. Remember practice doesn’t make perfect, Perfect practice makes perfect! Get in touch with us now at Music in mind to start your Melbourne in home Trumpet lessons.

Musicians stand up and are applauded. As skills go you have mastered one of the most difficult art forms in our culture. The ability to multi task is so fundamental to a musician that sometimes we take it for granted. This multi tasking is most obviously seen when we sight read. The calculations required to both read the note and play the note are quite astonishing! I like to think of it as a three part juggling act. Read and interpret the note, count the rhythm dictated and play the note perfectly. For young Melbourne musicians having trumpet lesson it is imperative that sight-reading become part of your regular practice. In order to master the skill it must be trained by constant reading through new pieces of music, at different tempos and in different time signatures. It doesn’t have to be hours per day, just 10-20mins will get you on the road to mastering this skill and your brain will be exercised like no amount of TV or book reading can do.
