Have you done your practice today?
If you have, that’s great, now do some more.
Practice can mean many things: Physically playing and practicing your instrument; creating and composing with others or by yourself; listening to music; improving all technical aspects of your musicianship: ear training, rhythm, technique, tone, improvisation, harmony, sight reading, intonation. Rhythm, have I said that already? Timing in my humble opinion is the most important thing ever... some people call this feel. Use a metronome when practicing, halve the clicks if what you’re working on is faster than 80bpm.
Keep your ears open for music you haven’t heard before. Go out and meet other creatives and lastly always be thankful that you can play, have access to an instrument, a place to practice in and the time to do it in.
I’m now off to work on some music.
