Of course there are some who have been blessed with natural gifts BUT with practice anybody can raise the standard of their playing. Without practice there would be NO improvement however natural your gifts.
This is why eto Music Practice is committed to making you WANT to practise…….making your practice sessions as efficient and enjoyable as possible.
I read the phrase of this blog’s title in book The Practice of Practice by Jonathan Harnum………well worth a read.
‘The more I practice, the luckier I get,’ is a well known phrase attributed to Arnold Palmer or Gary Player the golfers…and many more:)
Michelangelo the Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer (1475 – 1564) who had an unparalleled influence on the development of Western Art said of himself:
If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.
“I really feel that if you’re gonna be good, you gotta practice… Practice whatever the hell you do.”
― Ray Charles
Be encouraged….but perhaps they are being a little modest:
“What I have achieved by industry and practice, anyone else with tolerable natural gift and ability can also achieve.”
― Johann Sebastian Bach
“It is a mistake to think that the practice of my art has become easy to me. I assure you, dear friend, no one has given so much care to the study of composition as I. There is scarcely a famous master in music whose works I have not frequently and diligently studied.”
― Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
