What part of the year do you practice the most?
« on: August 17, 2021, 10:49:28 PM »
Hii! So summer's basically over and school starts soon. I had planned to practice a lot with all the free time but I ended up being lazier than I thought I would be :'( I'd almost say I've been more productive with my practice during the semesters than during the holidays. I don't understand why that is? Is it the same for you? When are you the most productive with you practice?

I found more time to practice during this summer than I do during the semesters (I'm not in school anymore, though). I usually like practising sporadically during the day, and get more done that way, than if I have to squeeze it in before or after work. Of course, I also work during the summer but I also get more time off  :D

Definitely winter-time.

It's dark outside for a good bit of the day, and it just feels like a good time to be at home doing stuff rather than catting around in the bars until all hours of the night.

Same with reading/studying.

It's just quieter:  neighbors aren't doing a lot of construction, yadda yadda.

It just struck me that I don't even know anymore. The pandemic messed with my practicing a great deal (I used to rely on instruments not in my home which I obviously couldn't utilize nearly as much during the pandemic) and I only recently got a digital instrument to play on at home. I can't even remember when I was the most productive before that. :S I do recall summer holidays were often good but honestly I am not sure.

Not much difference but summer (which only lasts about 6 weeks here) is the least productive - more people want to visit, hiking is tempting, there's lots of work in the vegetable garden.

Seems like there is a slight majority that practice better in the autumn/winter than the summer then  :D whew! Summer is definitely nice so I like to spend time outside  8) Here's to cozy indoor practice during the autumn!
