RECORD YOURSELF After you have practiced a piece or technique for some time record yourself playing it. It doesn’t have to be a recording studio session just a small recorder or boom box so you can hear yourself back. By sitting back and listening back to you playing, you will hear things a bit different then when you were playing it live. It’s almost like you are hearing from the outside looking in instead of the inside looking out. It will give you a new perspective and open your ears up to your strengths and weaknesses.
