- Follow the 80/20 rule – The 80/20 rule is simple: basically, 80% of your success is determined by only 20% of your efforts.
- Pay attention to posture – Posture plays an essential role in building physical habits, which can make or break your ability to play by affecting your speed, control, power, and overall technique.
- Practice with a Metronome – A device that produces an audible click or other sounds at a regular interval that can be set by the user, typically in beats per minute (BPM).
- Mix up your practice!
- And probably the most crucial piece of advice… Have fun!
