Encouraging Practice

Parents know all too well the amount of distractions that are out there for kids these days.  Sometimes practicing a musical instrument gets put aside when things like video games take over our lives.  Here are three tips that I have found encourage more practice.

1.     Set a time for practice every day.

If practicing happens every day at 3:00, it feels like a ritual and becomes habitual.

New Music!

I have been writing music with my good friends Chuck Conser and Dan Mineart.  We used to play in groups together based out of northern Virginia before life took us to different areas of the country.  Chuck now lives in Dallas, and Dan in Richmond.  Using video conferencing with Google+, we are able to write and record music together like we are still in the same room.  We are releasing the first album under the group's name December later in the spring. 

How to Start a Jam

Whether it is by a camp fire, in someone’s living room, or on-stage, jamming is one of my favorite parts of playing music.  While there are many things un-established, having a few guidelines will help you have a great jam session.
