What is Discipline?
Discipline is having the self-control to do something on your own (that means without being asked), in order to make progress or achieve a goal.
Discipline in Music Lessons
You can be disciplined in many things. People who are successful in their music lessons show discipline by consistently showing up to their music lessons on time, taking care of their instruments, always having their lesson materials, and being prepared for their lessons.
Most importantly, they practice the assignments their teacher gave them and follow any and all lesson notes. All of this without having to be asked by someone at home.
So how do you become disciplined and find your self-control? One way is by setting a routine and giving yourself enough time to progress and reach your goals by a certain date.
Why is it Important to be Disciplined?
Well, choices have consequences. If you choose not to be disciplined you may feel disappointed or frustrated with yourself. If you choose to be disciplined, then you can build your skills, improve, and be proud of all the things you’ve accomplished.
This month, prove to yourself that you have self-control and can show discipline.
The Little School of Music Leadership Program introduces monthly principles to enhance the life lessons, leadership skills, and character development experienced in music education. This is at the core of our program as we use music and learning to play an instrument as the tool. Each month a short introductory video on the monthly leadership principle will be shared with parents, students, and teachers to watch at home. We encourage students to extend what they learn to other parts of their life including at school, at home, and especially among their peers.
