Steps To Finding Time To Practice Music

Posted by on Feb 14, 2017 in Music and Melody | 31 comments

As an adult learner, and actually as a busy child these days, finding time to practice music can be difficult.

But here’s the good news… it’s only as difficult as you think it is – even for the busiest houseparent. Wedding bands in Melbourne are known for dedication to practice music.

There are only three things to consider when trying to find the time for your music practice.

1. Priorities

We all know that priorities make a difference to how we spend our time.  Often work and family take the first priority on the list, and they have to.

But have you considered the way you spend your leisure time – even if you have a small amount?

Most of that can be taken up with pursuits that don’t offer you any return benefits such as watching television, playing computer games, surfing the internet or playing with  your i-device.

And it’s these activities that can take up much more time than we intended to give them.

They are time stealers.

The protest around taking time away from these activities is that many people think of them as things they do to relax or switch off, which brings me to the next point…

2. The Way You Frame Your Music Practice

Practicing your music is not work.

It is not another thing that has to be done.

It is not an effort.

Practicing music is:

  • what you do to relax,
  • it is your play time,
  • it is what you want to do,
  • it is what you do to turn off from the every day and enter into the creative world of play.

If you know how to practice music – and this is what this site is dedicated to helping you with  – your practice will be all of the above and more.  It will be something you look forward to doing as often as  you possibly can.

If you are able to frame your practice as this, you will then find that…

3. Music Practice Becomes A Need In Your Life

Once you know how to enjoy your music practice and feel how it improves your well-being (it may be worth checking out this article to make sure you are on the right track), your practice will not be something you need to make time for, but something which you simply have to do in order to sustain a good quality of life.

Having something like music in your life is as important for the mind, body and spirit as exercise and healthy eating, as long as you know how to do it.

Time Management

If you are not good at managing your time, even with the best intentions of practice it will be hard for you to get around to it.
