This is a topic I am very passionate about because these strategies have been essential to my growth as a musician. Not only have they helped deal with (and now avoid) many serious injuries and frustrations from my early guitar years, they've also helped me improve faster and more musically than I would have ever imagined possible. I wish I had learned these strategies early on but unfortunately not many people teach them so I had to discover them on my own. I truly hope that you find these videos helpful. If you implement these strategies into your practice they will absolutely help you improve more efficiently and avoid the set-backs I went through.
The strategy for today covers the importance of taking frequent breaks during and between practice sessions. It’s a simple idea at face, but the way you take your breaks can either be extremely helpful to your leaning and injury prevention or not. In this video I cover 4 categories: 1) Micro-Breaks, 2) Movement Breaks, 3) Long Breaks and 4) Patience. This video is a bit longer than my usual videos but I feel that it’s important to share this information in detail to make sure that you apply these principles correctly. Enjoy!!
