No matter what your instrument is, we all play music because we love it. But even if music is your number one passion, sometimes your motivation slips away a little – often for no apparent reason. All of a sudden, you find yourself dreading that evening practice, and struggle to stay focused.
It’s never a good place to be in, but it happens to all of us – and we’ve got some tips to help you get through it.
1) Remember why you started playing in the first place
2) Do something different
If you’ve been practicing the same pieces for months, it’s no surprise that you’re struggling to stay motivated.
3) Change your practice routine
It’s good to have a routine, but when that routine becomes boring and unproductive, it’s time for a change.
