Today's presentation is about creativity and time management...
For many people, this challenges their work ethic.
In order to improve your performance quality, musicians must practice daily. Practice time can be broken up between fundamentals such as scales and technical exercises, to actual excerpts from your performance repertoire.
Creativity doesn't happen overnight. It takes many hours of focused practice in order to gain the ability to be creative. This means that you can sing the right part at the right time effortlessly.
Time management is critical. Without the ability to manage your time, it is impossible to practice consistently in order to hone your craft and to gain the experience necessary to be creative in a temporal art form such as music.
Having fun and enjoying your time as an adolescent is alright in moderation, so long as it doesn't interfere with your goals as a student. When you know that you are managing your time well, it is important to give yourself a break and enjoy some fun.
The key to being a creative performer is consistent daily practice. Even if you can only practice for 15-20 minutes per day, this is a much better option than trying to spend a lot of time learning your parts all at once or right before your performance.
When consistent daily practice is applied, then your true creative potential will be fully realized. There is nothing more gratifying than having the confidence to know that you are ready to perform your music for your friends, family, and peers.
