Are You Having Fun While You Practice?

Welcome to episode 234 of the LJS Podcast where today I give a quick lecture on the importance of having fun when you practice. Of course, having fun should be the center of why we practice and want to improve. But having fun when you practice can also lead to quicker results in your jazz playing.

Listen to episode 234

Today’s episode is probably the shortest in LJS podcast history, but that’s because I want to share a short but powerful message with you.

Now, I want to ask you a question first before we jump into it though.

When you sit down to practice your instrument, when you sit down to improve your jazz playing, are you having fun?

Are you having fun more often than you are frustrated? More often than you are feeling held back? Are you enjoying yourself when you are playing? 

Because if you’re not, you could be holding yourself back immensely from improving and becoming a better jazz musician quicker.

So, in today’s episode, I want to give a short lecture all about having fun and why that is so important.

In this episode:

1. A short lecture on having fun and how it will help you improve faster
