Practice 10 minutes

March 18, 2010

I saw a blog post about how it can be better to practice for 10 minutes a day than an hour a day. What?

My take on it is, it’s better to practice for 10 minutes than 0 minutes. It’s not how long you practice, but how frequently you practice.

Some practice is better than no practice.

So 10 minutes a day for 7 straight days is better than practicing the same amount of time (70 minutes) all in one session. It has something to do with repeated practice (like a sport). Obviously, the longer each practice session the better (up to a point).

So don’t skip a day. Instead, do a shorter practice that day. Some practice is better than no practice. And I believe you should practice songwriting, not just your instrument or voice.
