Every once in awhile, when you practice...

Recently found this article and I love it. I spend a lot of time getting ramped up during lessons about ingenious practice techniques, or about how to best work practicing into the busy, expectation-filled lives of my students.  It's something that generally consumes a few minutes of every lesson I teach, and this article sums up my feelings on the matter so perfectly.

Kids - IT'S WORTH IT! It's worth going to bed 5 minutes later, worth the two minutes of talk time before band, worth the half hour of after school time - if you want to learn and be good at this thing you do all the time - it's worth it.  :) 

Student has amazing break through by doing what teacher says
