Do you want to make the most of your practice time? The author, Matthew Mills, has spent over 25 years teaching pianists of all ages and levels. Many of his private students have gone on to study at top UK universities and conservatoires. In this book, he draws on this wealth of experience to examine in detail the process of practising a musical instrument. Starting with what motivates musicians to practise, he goes on to explore the process of learning, and how to apply this in the most effective ways to planning and evaluating your practice sessions, helping you make the most of your time, maximise your progress, and find joy at every step along the way. As this book is written in general terms, you will find here ideas, practical advice, and inspiration to engage more profoundly with the practice process, regardless of your instrument, age, or level of ability.
