Bad Habits

One of the HARDEST things to do as a musician is going back and fixing what you’ve practiced incorrectly. I’ve had to do it. Or, even worse, when we’re talking about fixing bad habits. When I first started the piano, I had the awful habit of dropping my wrists. And so, my piano teacher threatened to put a quarter on the top of my hand to keep my wrists where they needed to be. Thankfully, I fixed that habit very quickly!

Here’s a fun video about what happens when we try to fix bad habits.

It’s hard. It’s frustrating. And it makes you want to give up. But, if you keep at it, keep focused and put in the work, soon that good habit will take hold and you’ll be a better musician for it!
