Whether it’s your new job, spending time with friends and family, or trying to manage your life, it can difficult to find time for your passions and hobbies. We know, life can get crazy. How can you balance all of the important things in life and time for the piano? Here’s how to balance music and life:
Make A Schedule
Have you ever felt like you’re procrastinating playing the piano? The best way to find time for practicing the piano is by taking time out of your day to practice the piano. So, set a schedule! A great way to do this is by setting a timer on your phone to remind you of practice. For example, try setting a timer for the morning time before breakfast or after dinner. This way, you can go about your day and feel stress-free with your practice time.
Find A Balance
The first thing that is essential in making music a priority in your life is consistency. Practicing the piano for 2 hours one day per week will not make you better. However, playing the piano five days a week for 20-30 minutes will make you better. Just like anything else in life- getting better at playing the piano takes consistency. You can take 20-30 minutes out of your day, right? At the same time, it’s important to keep a healthy balance in your life. If playing the piano is just a hobby for you, then don’t devote several hours of your day to the piano instead of your loved ones!
Build A Routine
Practicing piano is just like working out. You can’t go to the gym without a plan, routine, or direction of what you’re going to do. The piano is the same way. Go into every day with a place or goal, and you’ll find that practice time is much easier to manage.
Get Family Involved
If you’re ever worried about missing family/friend time, get them involved with your music! If you’re a parent, teaching your child the piano or sharing your music with your family is a great way to feel connected and inspired. Even if you can’t involve your family every day, you can make a total difference once a week. 💡 If you want to involve your children, check out our blog Tips For Making Piano Fun For Kids.
Enjoy It the Music
Last but not least, make sure to enjoy your piano playing time. Whether it’s just a hobby for you or your career, motivation and enjoyment are essential. As musicians, it can be easy to feel unmotivated and not as excited as we once were about music. How do you keep yourself motivated? The key is to play music. There are endless tips and blogs out there on the right and wrong ways to play music. However, music is not a chore. If you are feeling unmotivated, try listening to some artists and songs that make you feel inspired. Watch their interviews and concerts, their thoughts behind a song, and find what makes you love the song. 💡Check out of blog on How To Make Piano Practice More Fun.
