Guitar Lessons Tulsa | Making Progress through Practicing the Guitar

This content was created for Curtis Music Academy

The next thing that I want to talk about in this edition of the Curtis music Academy podcast is the same thing that I’ve talked about in my last two recordings. And so I’m going to spend the next 10 minutes going over the next instrument. And you guessed it, it’s definitely the guitar. So what I’m going to point to is 10 minutes of information on how to maximize the effectiveness of your guitar lessons Tulsa through practicing. So these would be some practice strategies to take home with you and to do at home. That’s really important to practice at home. So what we want to talk about here is how to practice a guitar with a limited amount of time and still get results. 


So we’ve got all of our students in school, they’re working full time, you know, everyone has something else that they’re doing. You know, you’re not just taking guitar lessons Tulsa full time in your life. You know, you obviously have to be making money or you’re a student, any of that. So in any case, you aren’t going to be incredibly busy. All of our students are busy. So what we’re going to talk about here at Curtis music Academy in this podcast is specifically for our students who are busy and need to know how to maximize the effectiveness of their lesson, specifically guitar in this podcast, but how to maximize the effectiveness of their practice time when they’re able to practice. 


So not all of us have three hours to spend a day practicing and we need something less tailored towards the people who have, you know, 15 minutes here and there. So I want to go through and start with just a couple of ways that you can practice the guitar in a limited amount of time, but get the most out of it. So for what you should be focusing your practice on, the things that are going to move you towards your goal. So just as in the other two podcasts that I’ve talked about, the first step always needs to be setting that goal. That’s really, really important to taking guitar lessons Tulsa and teaching guitar lessons Tulsa has a goal in mind. 


If you don’t have a goal, you’re not going to know how to get there and you’re not going to know where you’re going. So having a goal is incredibly important and once you’ve got that goal of efficient and effective, practicing is going to be the practicing that pushes you closer to your goal. It’s not going to be the practice that has you messing around. It’s important that what you spend your time doing while taking guitar lessons Tulsa and while practicing at home is working towards the things that actually matter in things that are actually going to achieve results. 


But that’s not to say the fun practices don’t have a place because definitely when you’re practicing guitar, even if you don’t have a ton of time, if you’re taking a time out of your day one day to jam out with your friends or partners with them or play along with something or to something on the radio, that type of practice is still fun and it’s still effective. That’s the thing is just holding the guitar and playing it at any instrument. It’s effective just to be playing it, whether or not you’re working towards your actual goals or just messing around. That’s important too. So it’s not to discount the place that having fun and learning has because it definitely is effective. Just perhaps not the most effective use of your time.


 If you want a time crunch. So like I talked about at the very beginning, I guess the real purpose of this podcast is to go over what we can do better in our Goodheart practicing. If you’re on a time crunch, if you don’t have a ton of time in your day, if you’re really busy, anything like that. The goal of this podcast is to talk about how you can effectively practice how to do it efficiently and learn all the things. So you need to learn in a limited amount of time, but if you’ve got more time and if you want to practice with your friends or anything like that, that has a place and it’s really effective in terms of learning. 


So we don’t want to discount that, that’s for sure. It’s just not the most effective way to use your time. If that’s what you’re aiming for. So tip number two for practicing efficiently and maximizing the effectiveness of your guitar lessons Tulsa through practice is to not let a day go by where you don’t practice the guitar. So we want you all to be practicing every single day on the guitar, even if it is just for 10 minutes. You just need to be picking up the guitar and making yourself familiar and learning and all of the things that come along with that. It’s really, really important that we’re spending our time focusing on those types of things, making sure that we are working towards holding it. 


Interesting. Just being on the guitar is something that’s incredibly effective and that cannot be beat, but we want to make sure that you’re being consistent because consistency is so much more important than the amount of time that you practice. So you can practice this for an hour every day and it would just be bad practice. But if you’re spending 15 minutes, you know, working towards the things that are actually going to help you, things like that. If you’re actually spending time doing that, it’s going to be way more effective than an hour long practice where you just kind of messed around. It didn’t do anything. So that’s something that we definitely want to point out is it’s really important that you are spending time practicing every single day, even if it’s an off for a very long time. Because consistency is key when you are taking guitar lessons Tulsa and when you’re practicing the guitar, consistency is key and you’re not going to lose things if you’re picking up the guitar every day.
