Practicing via Stephen Aron


Nice article about practicing via Stephen Aron Guitar Studio. He gives us context about practicing and also outlines what types of things make up a balanced practice session. Here is the intro paragraph:

Stephen-AronSerious students of the guitar generally regard themselves as performers, or at least, future-performers.

But practicing is a difficult and complicated subject, fraught with opportunities for failure. I often think that what I teach isn’t guitar, but practicing.

We are all students of practicing.
