Welcome to episode 189 of the LJS Podcast where today I have on special guest pianist and educator Brett Pontecorvo to talk about making time to practice and setting up a masterplan to achieve your musical goals. Not having time to practice is a common complaint, but this episode crushes that limiting belief and shows you a path to achieve more in your musical life.
Listen to episode 189I get emails from subscribers of Learn Jazz Standards all the time, saying that:
I really want to become a better jazz musician. I really want to reach my goals. I want to reach the potential that I know I have as a musician, but I just simply don’t have time to practice and I don’t have time to practice the amount that I think I need to practice.
Well, in today’s episode, I have a returning guest, Brett Pontecorvo, who is a brilliant musical mind and a brilliant teacher, to show us that yes, indeed, we do have time, how to start prioritizing our practice and to find the spaces where we can thrive and grow as a musician.
This is a powerhouse episode. It’s one of those episodes that is the real deal. This is the real stuff that is going to help you improve. It’s not the fancy tricks, licks and all those things. It’s all about this.
In this episode:
1. Establish your vision and get specific
2. Write down all of your daily activities and quit the ones that don’t align with your vision
3. Set up a calendar
4. Establish your reflection questions
I look forward to having you join me in the next episode!
