"It's the destination not the journey" is a quote you've probably seen roaming Instagram but you may not have asked yourself how it applies to your music practice.
Too many of us are muscling our way through practice sessions we SHOULD be doing rather than asking how we can SAVOUR them, let them nourish us in beautiful ways and SLOW DOWN.
Most of us are leading full, busy lives, but why can't our music be something that we relax into rather than rushing through? And if you did make this shift, how would it change how you play?
Can improvement exist in a space of calm and slowness?
What are we sacrificing in the name of rushing and muscling through it?
Would we in fact get more joy and progress out of a more intentional and deliberate practice?
