How to overcome common music challenges during practice

Frederik Nielsen, in Community news
Nov 06, 2023 | 4 min read

Let’s face it: every musician, whether a beginner or a seasoned pro, faces a plethora of music challenges during practice. 

But hey, challenges are just opportunities in fancy clothes, right? Let’s look at how you can overcome these musical speed bumps and keep the rhythm flowing!

Every challenge has its beat

It’s said that every problem has a solution. Similarly, for every music challenge, there’s a beat waiting to be discovered.

  • Is boredom setting in? The repetition can get to anyone. Switch it up! Try different genres or techniques. Ever tried jazzing up a classical piece? Why not!
  • Stuck on a tricky part? Slow it down. And when you think it’s slow enough, slow it down some more! It’s no race. It’s about getting it right.
  • Feeling uninspired? Take a break. Listen to new artists or genres. Remember, even Beethoven had his off days (although earbuds weren’t a thing back then 😜).

Tools to help you groove through

Having the right tools can make all the difference when navigating music challenges. It’s like having a musical GPS!

  • Practice consistently with a metronome: A reliable beat can be your best friend. And hey, if you’re looking for the top dog of metronomes, check out Soundbrenner’s Core here. It’s not just a metronome; it’s an experience!
  • Set clear goals: Know what you want to achieve by the end of your practice. And keep it fun! Aim to play a funky rendition of a song or nail that difficult bridge.
  • Stay motivated with apps: There are fantastic apps out there that help musicians like us push through. The Soundbrenner app is one of them. Not to brag, but… it’s kinda awesome.

Quick hacks to bypass the hiccups

Alright, rock stars, here’s a quick rundown of some nifty tricks to help bypass those music challenges:

  • Keep your instrument in sight: You know the saying, “Out of sight, out of mind?” Well, it’s true. If you see your instrument, you’ll play it more.
  • Jam with friends: It’s always fun, and you’ll learn a thing or two from one another.
  • Set a routine: Consistency is the key. The more you play, the easier it gets. Pinky promise!

Incorporating tech into your practice

Embrace the digital age! The integration of technology can do wonders for your practice sessions.

  • Online tutorials: Not everything needs to be self-taught. Sometimes, a different perspective from online tutorials can be the breakthrough you need. You can also find some great tutorials on YouTube.
  • Recording yourself: Listen to your performances. It’s a humbling and enlightening experience. Trust me; you’ll hear things you never noticed while playing. This will help in overcoming your music listening challenges.
  • Soundbrenner wearables: The modern musician’s secret weapon. Our wearables not only help keep time but also ensure you’re immersed in your practice. Magic? Almost!
