How to decide what to practice on piano

Think for a moment about what you practice on piano. What do you enjoy working on? What do you like to play? What do you spend the most time practicing?

It’s all good, of course. The main goal is to spend time at the piano, enjoying it.

But if you’re at one of those times when you feel like you want to improve your playing, here’s a different way to think about it:

Ask yourself the following three questions:

1. What do you like practicing?

2. What do you need to practice in order to get better, but don’t enjoy?

3. What would help you improve, but you don’t know about yet?

There’s a place and a time for all three ways. The problem is that most of us never find the answer to #3.
