Isolation Is Our Friend
Group think can be a good thing. Group lessons areworthwhile, classroom work is good and congregations and gatherings are sometimes necessary, however, the real work is done by yourself. Practice alone. Study alone. Work alone, with intensity.
Do you want to get really good ideas, or gain a skill you’ve never had before? After tutoring, then head for the practice room, or your room. Close the door, eliminate distractions and then go to work.
Go as slow as necessary, with forethought about each action, each touch, each step. Once mastered, proceed up to an acceptable speed for mastery and performance mode.
Isolation is OK if you do it right.
And doing it right means careful attention, one note, one step, one skill at a time until you put it all together.
It’s not rocket science, but it is developmental science.
