Hey rockstars! Happy holidays!
Today I wanted to talk shortly about how often a guitar player should practice. Most of my clients meet me on a weekly basis (as many of you know). At the end of each lesson, I make sure they understand exactly what I want them to practice for next week. The common question is… how much should I practice, Andrew?
Allow me to put your worries to rest. My first response is.. well, until your fingers hurt so bad you physically can’t play… haha. jk, but that wouldn’t be a bad idea (think Eddie Van Halen who practiced 12 hours a day).
What I tell students is just 15 minutes a day.
I find that we learn things a lot better if we study in small increments every single day. Think of it as a balanced diet. 15 minutes a day of whatever skillset you want to learn, be it Guitar, Judo, or Underwater Basket-Weaving.
Hope this helps!
All the best,
