3 Practice Tips for Young Musicians

  |   Blog, Rising Star, Tips, Tricks & Licks

Though it may sound like a cliché, the old adage “practice makes perfect” is really true when it comes to playing music, and no one knows this more than Rockwall musician Paul Harrington. In addition to appearing on countless studio recordings, this veteran musician also played the signature harmonica riff on Pitbull’s number one single “Timber.” In between studio gigs, Paul was kind enough to share his practice tips with us:

 

  1. Practice daily, with at least five minutes focused on fundamentals. Doing this will guarantee improvement.
    Skills first!
  2. Rehearse at low speed and low volume. Pay close attention to the notes and get a good feel for the melody.
  3. Practice in areas with ” echo “. Stair wells, garages, and bathrooms sound cool. If you plan on playing live, this is closer to what you’ll sound like to other people.
