The Monthly Practice Tip:
The FIRST Five Minute Focus is where the most work is accomplished!
Half the problem is just getting started, or thinking that you don’t have enough time. If you have time to check your Texts, Twitter, Instagram or FaceBook, You Have Time for one excerpt! Keep your case open, or hang your instrument on the wall.
Do More Than None!
