don’t practice, just tune: a study on getting to a practice session

I tell my student to keep their cellos on a cello stand when they are at home so they are more likely to practice – but does that get you over to the practice chair?

Here is a post from the Bulletproof Musician that correlates a study that show if you just START something, you will want to finish it rather than leave it half done.

So the moral of the story is, just play 1 scale or 1 étude or just TUNE. I think you’ll find you want to keep going!20140526-102307-37387451.jpg
