Practice strategy: Go slow

Music teachers are always trying to get students to slow down. Maybe they should tell them playing extremely slow is the Jedi-knight secret to playing fast.

It may seem counter-intuitive, but if you practice slowly and carefully, you’ll be able to play tunes faster and learn them in less time. 

But don’t let speed be your goal. Focus instead on good sound, timing, and listening.

This not only applies to practicing a tune or technique, but also to the rate at which you learn new things. Try to go deeper with everything instead of learning something superficially and moving on too quickly. Remember, Yur hands need a lot of time to learn something, even though your brain might get bored.
