This year I made it a goal to practice at least 45 minutes every single day. To paraphrase Wynton Marsalis, it’s better to practice 30 minutes everyday than it is to practice for several hours once every few days and so I decide to practice on a regular basis rather than inconsistent chunks.

Join me on my Project 365 and download our 365 worksheet to help keep track of your practice schedule.

Even if you don’t make it through everyday, the chart is a great way to see how much you’re actually practicing.
