Want to know a trick to instantly be more musical and focused when doing mundane drills or warming up?
Broadcast yourself using Facebook Live, Instagram stories or on YouTube.
Even if three people are watching you, hell, even if there is only a threat of just three people watching you, you will be incredibly focused.
As anyone who has ever taught knows, it is awfully easy to be fully engaged when performing a drill for a student. And that's just with an audience of one. With social media, you can recreate that phenomenon any time you'd like.
Simply posting a one-minute chunk in the middle of your warm-up will engage your brain and make you much more focused, even after the camera is off.
If you are bored while doing drills or warming up, there are tools at your disposal to remedy that situation. If you don't use any of them and continue to not play at your absolute focused, best, it's on you.
And every one of your heroes on your instrument is always playing at her or his focused best.
