💬 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! :)
