Are you a professional musician? Do you find you don’t have as much time to practice as you wish you had?
Between scheduling lessons and gigs, giving lessons, invoicing and hunting down payment, and more, practicing can easily fall to the wayside. However, it’s essential to improving your playing.
You don’t have to spend hours a day practicing. But if you don’t keep up with it, it can be hard to get back into playing.
The last thing you want as a musician is to show up to a gig, prepare a recording, or teach a lesson without feeling prepared. After all, your job is to be proficient on your instrument.
Still, playing alone won’t pay the bills. At least not for most of us.
I’ve had many different practice schedules over the years. And fortunately, all of them revolve around one thing. Goals.

What would it feel like to:

Can’t I create my own practice tracker?
You can create your own tracker. But it won’t include all of the goodies and extras that you’ll find in this workbook and guide.
As a busy musician, I’ve found the strategies that help me make vast improvements in my playing and in less time.
I’m an amateur musician. Is this right for me?
While the workbook is geared toward professionals, advanced amateur players can use it, too! After all, you have a day job, so you probably have even less time to practice than a professional musician.
I’m a beginner. Will this work for me?
The guide offers suggestions primarily for advanced players. However, you can still use the tracking pages. Work with your teacher to determine what is best for you to practice for each session length.
Do you have a sample?
I do not have a sample as of now. If you’d like to see how I format practice trackers and guides, please view The Busy Musician’s Planner for an idea of what to expect.
Do you need to use this with a practice planner?
I recommend combining this practice guide with whatever works for you. If you need a practice planner, please check out The Busy Musician’s Planner. It is an excellent companion product.
I still have questions. Where can I get answers?
