The Big IDEA
Identify a small section of a piece that needs work.
This should be 1-12 measures, avoid large sections.
Avoid "playing through" a whole piece.
Decide on an OMG = Obtainable Musical Goal
What aspect of music needs work?
Fingerings, Intonation, Rhythm, Tempo, Tone, Bowing Articulation, Dynamics, Phrasing...
Execute your goal using a variety of practice strategies.
Repetition will always be a part of your practice, but should not be the only factor.
Analyze how you did. Did you improve? Did you reach your goal? Did you choose effective strategies? Should you try something else next time?
