1. Every time we practice we should be honest about our strong points and about the problems. There is no need to be overly enthusiastic or too humble as we don‘t have to impress anyone. When you‘re honest about your playing it is much more easy to do the next step.
3. When you have clearly in mind the exact situation, plan the next step. What do you have to do to play better? Is it just a matter or practicing the exact musical piece or should you work on some technical aspects? Do your scales need polishing? Maybe you should find some exercises which could help you improve?
These are very easy steps, but they can make a huge improvement in your playing! Have fun and happy fluting!
