...where the deer and the antelope play.  Well, they're not really playing.  They're fleeing in terror.

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if its beneficial, detrimental or no different if I break my hours practice over four separate 15min slots?

I try to get an hour a day in but sometimes due to commitments I find it easier to snatch 15mins throughout the day.

Thanks in advance!

It's better to practice for 5min than not at all. So if 4X15 minute slots works for you then that's what
you do. If you can sneak an extra 5 minutes in some of your practice slots that's even better.

Awesome, thanks for taking the time to reply!

Do you mean 3 x 20mins would be better?

Several 20 minute sessions can often be more beneficial than a single longer one. We generally gain the most benefit in about the first half hour or so, and stepping away gives our brains time to absorb what we've just done. Each time we return and recall it, it becomes that much more permanent.

Of course, there are some things that we just need to practice doing over and over again, and those may benefit from longer sessions. For the most part though, 20 minutes of focused practice at a time is pretty ideal.

No If 4X15 minute slots work better for you then that's the best, but if there are times that you can get
an extra few minutes it is always a bonus. Justin recommends breaking your practice time up into 5min
slots any way. Have you seen the break down Justin has laid out?

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the responses. I'm using Justin's 1hour intermediate workout and it's done wonders in two months. I think I'm going to try and increase to 3 x 20mins a day and see how it feels. My girlfriend's a teacher and swears by learning in 25min sessions broken up with a 5min break but I'm not sure that would work well with 'intensive' practice.

I love how learning an instrument can take you off into other worlds as well as music!
