How To Practice - Free eBook

Everybody wants to know how to practice more effectively. Everyone is trying to work smarter, not harder, and hopefully my new free ebook on music practice will help you do just that. I'm advocating not working hard of course! It takes hard work and commitment to learn any musical instrument, but we live in a busy world with many distractions and learning some techniques to help you achieve more efficient and effective practice will help you make more progress on your instrument and stay focused on your music practice.

For those who aren't quite ready to buy my eBook Practice Makes Perfect yet, I have written a free ebook called How To Practice Music - 5 Habits To Help You Make More Progress. This book guides you through 5 habits to help improve your music practice technique. Many people only think about improving technique on their instrument, they don't think of improving their practice technique. We generally learn how to play our instrument, we don't spend so much time learning how to practice. If we did our music practice would become more efficient and effective, and we would make more progress in less time. This, of course, means that if you spent the same amount of time practicing you would make even more progress.

I would really appreciate it if you would 'pay with a tweet or facebook like' by clicking the button below, as it will help spread the word about the Essential Music Practice site, especially since I am just starting work on some new pages and sections about practicing individual instruments. These pages about practice techniques for individual instruments will also have comment sections where people can ask questions, share advice and tips on practice techniques that have worked for them, and the bigger the community involved, the more helpful it will be for other musicians.

The 5 Habits eBook is in the Adobe PDF format. Click here to get the free Adobe Acrobat Reader which you will need to view the file. Mac users may also view it in the built in application Preview.

I have taken the Music Practice App off the app store for a while because it isn't playing nice with iOS8 and also because I am doing a huge redesign with lots of new cool and exciting features to help you get the most from your practice.
