How to Practice to Get Better Results

Every musician, at some point in their musical career, has struggled with how to practice to get better results.

If we were lucky enough as beginning musicians to have had a good teacher, we would have learned to follow a system that helped us learn, developed our muscles and embouchres and kept us motivated.

For many of us, that ideal scenario didn't happen.

For those of us that were lucky, we still hit a point in our performing where we have to problem-solve a technical or embouchre problem, get prepared for an upcoming audition, or learn a whole bunch of pieces or tunes in a very short amount of time. This leads to a total change in our practicing habits.
