Practising can often feel like a chore, especially when the deadline for a concert or exam is looming, therefore it is important to follow a practice diary and make your practice-routines efficient and varied to stay positive and motivated. Give yourself regular goals, and suddenly it’s not that boring after all!
“You get out of life what you put into it … simple.”- Tommy Emmanuel
Practice with Purpose
Practising regularly is absolutely 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, 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 as you 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. This diary contains 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.
Stay in Tune
We have also included space for teachers’ comments, so that they can review your practice and offer guidance on how to improve. Sometimes it can be hard to target areas of improvement on your own before a lesson, so it is always helpful to get some direction from your teacher to guide your practice. This way, you’re quite literally on the same page!
