In this episode, Craig continues to talk about the different things that we get from learning music that translate into all other aspects of our life. Motivation is one major one of those.

Practicing is WORK
Taking lessons can be fun. Making music can (and should be) fun. But practicing? That's not always fun. Practicing is WORK. There's no getting around it. You can get by on natural ability for so long and it will take you so far without putting in work. The work will help you improve as a musician. The work will help stretch and grow you to be able to try new things and pick up harder and harder challenges a little bit easier.  To download Craig's 10 tips to practice better PDF, click here.
