Practising can often feel like a chore, especially when a concert or exam is looming. It is important to use a practice diary and vary your routine to stay positive and motivated. Give yourself regular goals, and suddenly it’s not that boring after all!
Keep us posted on how your exam preparation is going by tweeting us @RSLAwards using the hashtag #practisewithpurpose.
Practise with Purpose
Practising regularly is key to any musician’s development, regardless of where they are on their musical journey. An absolute beginner and an experienced professional will practise in very different ways, but both will need a routine that helps them to maximise their potential by attaining new skills, and then maintaining and building on them.
If this is something you think your practice sessions could profit from, then try out RSL’s practice diary to help you practise with purpose, set realistic and achievable goals, and stay motivated! Practice is not about reaching perfection – it is about being better than you were yesterday.
How Can RSL’s Practice Diary Help?
This practice diary helps you keep track of your daily practice and monitor your own progress. Master a technique, nail a performance piece, and prepare for your next Rockschool exam.
On each page you’ll find space to make notes on your weekly practice routine to ensure that your sessions are as productive as possible, and that you are well prepared for the different sections of the Rockschool exams. Throughout the diary there are tips from some of the teachers on our RSL Teacher Registry – use these to inspire and motivate you along the way. You can find hundreds of Rockschool teachers on our Teacher Registry HERE.
Stay in Tune
We have included some blank sheet music as well as individual boxes for warm ups, supporting tests, and performance pieces that will allow you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, ultimately leading to more efficient and rewarding practice.
