11. CREATE A PRACTICE ROUTINE AND PLAY CONSISTENTLY…Soooo important, this may be the most important thing on this list, set a daily practice schedule with a well thought out practice routine. Have a well balanced diet of exercises, scales, techniques and challenging musical pieces. Some students think that they can miss four days of playing and practicing and practice 3 hours one day to make up, this is a misconception. Set up a daily practice schedule that you will be able to keep.
Repetition is the mother of skill and with daily practice you will become a great player
