Here’s a cartoon I did for Music & Arts, a company that supplies instruments and lessons, and a company that truly loves music.
This is based on my own kids, and the way they “practiced” violin. But it’s also based on ME as a kid, practicing piano. I remember I’d try to cram the entire week’s lesson into a 10-minute panic-fest right before we left for the piano teacher’s house. It was the WORST to then sit there and pretend like I knew what I was doing. I eventually changed my methods and learned to play piano pretty well. My kids, however, never really caught on to the whole “practice every day” thing.
