Everyone’s learning curve is different and can depend on both the individual and the instrument. In general, however, your progression depends upon commitment to a consistent practice schedule. The more you practice the better you play. The better you play the more fun you will have. The more fun, the more you want to practice, it’s a positive cycle! Goal setting is also an important part of making progress. Preparing for a recital several months in advance can keep you motivated and on task, which is great for skill improvement. It’s important to remember your musical journey is just that, a journey. There is no destination, but an ongoing enriching of your musical understanding, skill and enjoyment.
