Master Your Instrument with Reflection, Growth, and Progress

Why keep a practice journal?

By keeping a practice journal, you are much more likely to accomplish your musical goals. Plus, those who reflect on their practice sessions in writing and review what they’ve written 24 hours later can increase their memory retention by up to 70 %.

Yet it’s something that many learners don’t do. Perhaps because it takes time, and it can be challenging to know what to write about. That’s why I’ve put together this guide which is filled with lots of helpful prompts to get you started.

This guide will help you embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and improvement.

It’s easy to follow with questions to answer if you need some inspiration.

“I love my practice journal- and I love that I can see my progress and challenges! I spent ages looking at other people’s and trying to find a ‘perfect’ format….. but the most important thing ( for me at least) is to keep using it……I conclude it’s a journey and it’s my journey, so I can change up what I’m writing as I wish in order to support my learning!!” Chez
