Day 01 – Saxophone Challenge!
Over the next thirty days, commit to practicing your saxophone at least ten minutes per day.
The combination of musical dimensions that you should use and practice include:
Tone, technique (including finger touch and embouchure, Feel/Emotion, Dynamics, Rhythm, Phrasing, Space/Rest, Notes, Articulation, Vibrato, and Listening.
Understanding how the dimensions of music work together is crucial to understand, so take the time to make sure you ‘get’ the idea.
Tip – Set a time each day to practice and build the habit of practicing saxophone.
Mindset Lesson– Procrastination can keep you from playing your saxophone. Some of it has to do with thinking that getting better is a huge task that you can’t handle. It also has to do with fear of how you will sound.
You just need to break it down. Ten minutes isn’t a long time! If you focus on what is important, those ten minutes can help a lot.
Use some time that you usually spend doing something unimportant like watching TV.
And pick up your saxophone!
Keep track of what you practice each day. Shoot me an email at the end of the week and let me know how it’s going for you! There will be a prize for people who keep track of what they practice every day and send it to me each week.
