๐Ÿ’ฌ Deliberate Practice Strategies Video Description

This is my first livestream!

I've found these deliberate practice strategies to be helpful for myself, so I hope you find them helpful as well.

I've published a guitar lesson video every Tuesday for almost three years. For this week's lesson I decided to do it live!

I hope you enjoyed this lesson about deliberate practice strategies and found it beneficial.

Let me know if you like the live format. If you do, I'll start going live once a month (separate from my weekly videos).

Thanks for watching! :)
