Excellence is a Habit

Andrew Hitz

Tuby by Grill No Filter

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act but a habit.

-Aristotle

Becoming a great band director or an accomplished performer is not an accident.  If you require your students to play with their best sound possible at all times, it will become a habit.  If you make yourself play with great groove all the time, it will become a habit.

At the same time, if you allow yourself to clip a note to take a breath, it will become a habit.  If you allow your band to play heavier when playing fortissimo, it will become habit.

Excellence is indeed a habit.  Are your habits today promoting excellence?
