Making practice worthwhile

Of the many questions I have been asked, these are two questions which have particular poignancy; How can I make practice feel more worthwhile and Why do I make mistakes in performance which were not there in practice. While most often articulated as separate questions, they are very much connected and highlight some indisputable flaws which exist in the practice process itself.

How long should I practice & How can I feel more motivated to practice? (part 1)

How long should I practice and how can I feel more motivated to practice. These are two questions I am most often asked but as separate questions. Yet they are linked by three words which are crucial and fundamental to the practice process, Motive – Reason and Purpose.

How long should I practice & How can I feel more motivated to practice? (part 2)

Leading on from the last podcast where I discussed how long you should practice for and how to feel motivated to practice, in this podcast I will be explaining the relevance of motive, reason and purpose in organising a systematic process that will break down the often-disorganised approach to learning.
