10 Ways to Improve Your Musicianship in 2010

I just read an excellent blog post by one Chris Foley. Read the full post here. Below are his suggestions for improving one's musicianship this year (or any year):

1. Define your goals
2. Stick to a regular practice schedule
3. Refine your practice process
4. Take it to the people
5. Go on a diet – of listening
6. Spend time on ear training
7. Get technical
8. Learn the theory
9. Learn the history
10. Learn to sight read

Becoming accomplished at an instrument ought to be a life-long journey. If you don't accomplish all your goals as soon as you'd like, don't despair! Give yourself ample time to grow and mature into musical understanding. Playing a musical instrument can provide joy for a lifetime.
