This is just for general discussion. How do you fit practice sessions into your work week? Evenings, after work, if home, were my starting point. Is it fair to say that a complete lack of anything productive had a “starting point?”
After a few months, I managed to alter my work schedule to begin at nine in the morning, rather than eight, and secured at least a half-hour a day. Sometimes that includes tuning but usually I can spend the entire thirty minutes actually playing scales, working on the new piece, and reinforcing repertoire.
Now evenings, after work, if home, are for simply sitting and playing and noodling and experimenting and playing some more.
