Welcome to a new weekly 10-second tip.

Something I tell students a lot is this…


You need to be organised with your playing.

One of the simplest ways to organise things is to do the following:


“Create a playlist of songs you have learnt”


Having a playlist of all the songs you have learnt can be really powerful…

Especially if you have learnt more than a few.

A little playlist will help you keep track of these songs and encourage you to practise them regularly.

This is important to prevent you from forgetting how to play them.

A simple playlist on YouTube, or CD, or Spotify, or wherever, can be a good reminder to keep on top of the songs you have spent many hours working on.

It is a simple tip but definitely a useful one that many overlook.
