“If you don’t want to practice, you’re not alone. There are times when every musician feels that way.”

Challenge yourself to do a little better each day.

“A metronome is a great tool. Slow practice is, for me, the basis of conquering difficulties, and that’s the fun of it: to do a little better today than you could do yesterday! The only way that’s going to happen is to go back into the room and try again.”
