Keeping Up With Music – How to Stay Motivated

Piano Lessons San Antonio

There are so many fun things to do now that school is out for the summer! However, one of those things is most likely not practicing your instrument. As a former student myself, I totally understand, so don’t feel guilty if this is you! Like most hobbies and activities, playing an instrument requires tender love and care. The longer you go without playing your instrument, the more likely it is that you will forget all of the fun pieces and concepts that you have learned with your music instructor. So how can you balance having the summer of a lifetime while also consistently practicing your instrument?

1.     Change up your practice schedule! Playing your instrument at different times of the day can have some very interesting results – try practicing first thing in the morning or in the middle of the afternoon.

2.     Play for your friends and family! You’ll be surprised at how much fun it is to be the center of attention with your instrument. Even though it can be nerve-wracking, performing your music in front of people is an excellent way to keep motivated.

3.     Challenge yourself to pieces that you’ve always wanted to play. Now that school’s out, this is the perfect time to motivate yourself with that super hard piece you’ve always wanted to try!

I hope you all find these tips helpful. Now go out and enjoy your summer! (But don’t forget to practice!)

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
