Consistency Makes Perfect!
One important factor to keep in mind while practicing a musical instrument is that consistency and accuracy are the most important points to focus on. This applies to drums, guitar, bass, piano and all other instruments.
Lets say that you can play a piece perfectly 9 out of 10 times. So you’re feeling pretty good about that, right? Well, imagine if you have a 5 piece band and everyone plays the piece 90% correct. Well, the percentage of overall accuracy just went down substantially. Or if you imagine that each person in a big band or symphony plays his or her piece correctly 90% of the time. Now the overall percentage drops dramatically!
Therefore, it is best that you can play your required piece closer to 98% or 99% correctly on a regular basis. The main thing here is that you focus your attention while practicing so that you get the most out of your practice time because the standard for performing in a group is pretty high!
Keep practicing… “Because Music Matters”!
