Tips for Completing Your Spring Goals

“Procrastination is the thief of time.” Plan detailed careful practice sessions now to master your music for spring recitals or to complete important course deadlines.

Minimize distractions during your practice sessions.  Turn off your “devices” and focus on your music.

Communicate with your family and friends and share your goals.  You’d be surprised how supportive they will be.  They may even organize a detailed practice schedule for you. 

Timing is everything.  Schedule your practice sessions when you are mentally alert and ready to focus on and enjoy your music. 

Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your music!
