Welcome back, kkaiser343!! I hope that you enjoyed spending time with your family over the summer!

My wife is a teacher and has the summer off, so I understand how difficult it is to make time for yourself.

Have a great day!

Rudy

Welcome back! 

I'm a teacher as well. I teach band...so marching band takes up so much of my time (rehearsals after the school days are over, plus all day competitions on Saturdays). Sometimes, once I get home, I just plop on on the couch and not move for the whole day. 

I think that finding time to practice our art is important, but if it requires us to force ourselves, then our magic won't develop the way it should.

Will, that's something I struggle with. Seems like there's a fine line between making time to practice and forcing it. If anybody has the "magic formula" (who doesn't like puns?) for that, let me know, please.

Whenever I find that I am forcing myself, I stop. I do something else, like listen to music, watch TV, etc. Then my desire to practice will come back naturally, usually within a few hours or the next day. I find that 30 minutes of practice "in the zone" is better than 2 hours of forced practice. That's a teaching strategy that I learned when I was in college. The secret is learning how to "get in the zone," which I don't think an answer for that really exists yet.
