Tips on Learning Your Instrument Faster

It seems a lot of people are obsessed with anything relating to the word "fast." Fast food, fast cash...why, even learning an instrument has become faster. Although personally I don't have anything against short cuts, I still believe that if you want to achieve something, you have to work hard for it. The short cuts are there just in case you need it but it shouldn't always be your first option.

In learning a musical instrument, I have come up with "The Three P's" for you to remember if you want to master your instrument faster.

Pay Attention

Listen and give your instructor your full attention when you're in class. Bring a notebook and pen and jot down any information, tips or advice your instructor has that will further help your music playing. Ask your instructor if you have any questions or point of clarification.

Patience

Learning an instrument is hard at the beginning so you must be very patient with yourself. Don't be discouraged if for the first few months you feel you're making slower progress than the rest of your class. Each of us learn differently and it doesn't necessarily mean that if you learn slower you're not as good as them. Stick to your lessons and you'll be surprised at how much you've improved in the end.

Practice

Ahhh, every music student will hear this saying, "Practice makes perfect." It's true, the more you practice playing your instrument, the better you become at it. Set a time each day for practice and discipline yourself to stick to your schedule. You'll see, in no time you'll be playing beautiful music and you'll be pleased with the progress you've made.
