Rarely do I find a music article as good as this. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time I posted a link to another site on the front page.
Living somewhere in the dregs of a 90s-looking .edu site, this old article by Martin Schuring breaks down the essence of practicing and provides very detailed instruction for getting the most out of your time. It’s written for oboe players and most of us are not looking to achieve the level of proficiency he refers to, but almost every word applies to practicing any instrument on one level or another.
