  "After we subtract the amount of time we spend on musical pursuits from the total hours in our lives, we're lucky if we have as much as 10% (2-3 hours) left to work on what may be an important goal. This small amount of time must be used WELL to achieve the maximum benefit.

  It's a FACT that there is a connection between practice and accomplishment. Practicing LONG does not necessarily mean practicing WELL. What do you get done when you practice?

  This book has been written to aid in the examination of and possible restructuring of your practice habits.

  When I decided to be a professional musician, I practiced ten hours per day for almost a year. I didn't have much of an outside life. As I became more efficient, the time was reduced to six hours and then to four hours per day. Now I work one to three hours and get more done. I still have time left for a domestic life AND time to promote my music career. I make a constant study of how I can PRACTICE BETTER.

  My first formal attempt at organizing my ideas came when GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE asked me to write the POWER PRACTICING feature for their MASTER SERIES. This resulted in me giving motivational seminars at schools, music stores, and for the GIBSON GUITAR COMPANY. The response has been wonderful. There is apparently a lot of musical instruction going on, but very little on the ART OF PRACTICING! I've found with my own students that if they learn some simple TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS, their progress increases dramatically."
