I’m a fan of using time to measure progress for activities like practice. Numbers just don’t lie. Of course there’s so much more to practicing than time (like quality of attention, for example). But really, time tells the truth about a situation.
So we’re at the beginning of the New Year, and I’m sure there are lots of us musicians out there starting new practice routines. How about you?
