How to find out extra time for your passion for music?

“Life is a race, if you don’t run fast, you will be a broken anda (egg)”, this is what Aamir Khan said in the movie 3 Idiots. That’s pretty much true. But it is not necessary that everyone compete in the same race, right? But whichever race you run, you should be prepared for that. I mean to say that, whether you want to make your career in music, acting, science, engineering, or whichever field you like, you should be prepared enough to compete with thousands of other students. Schools prepare students to excel in science and commerce only, which is why students who want to pursue a career in music or sports struggle to find time for their passion. Here I will tell you how you can find extra time out of your school to learn music.

The present generation of kids is the busiest the world has ever witnessed. Now they have to go to school (many far away), tuition, extra classes, play cricket/badminton, swimming class, yoga class, etc. and whatever little time they get, that too goes into making reels. The point is – there are so many activities a child has to do in his day-to-day life and a day only has 24 hours in it. So it becomes difficult for children to manage their time and extract time to follow their passion. If someone wants to practice music, then they must have to cut short their playing time, wake up a little bit earlier, and follow a few more things which I will tell in the following points.

Before we get to the point, you must understand that you should be passionate about learning music or singing. If you are learning guitar as a fad or to impress the public on Instagram or just as a casual hobby, then it’s pretty much predictable that you will find excuses to bunk that guitar class and sleep a few extra minutes instead of practicing the instrument. There are thousands of students who dream of making a career as guitarists and they are practicing hard – day and night. You don’t necessarily have to get better than them but you need to make the best out of yourself. That can be done with thorough practice.

Here are a few ways that will help you practice your music/singing more.

  1. Waking up early: The most common way to increase minutes into your life is waking up early. You need to kill the urge to sleep for a few more minutes. Waking up just 30 minutes early can give you 3 hours extra time in a week. That’s a lot to practice your instrument.
  1. Join Tansen Music Academy: Tansen Music Academy offers flexible class timings in the morning as well as evening. So once you are done with your academic classes, you can join TMA to practice and rejuvenate.
  1. Cutting out time on social media: As far as you are spending time on social media to learn something, it’s fine. Otherwise, it is the most useless thing you will be doing in the world. The YouTube shorts or Instagram reels are designed in such a way that you will keep scrolling the feed for hours without actually doing anything. As per the latest statistics, on average, a child spends around 1.5 hours a day watching social media or making content for them. That’s 9 hours weekly. That’s quite a lot of time, isn’t it?
  1. Utilizing free classes in school: There are 2 games per period every week. Though I don’t encourage students to stop playing, if you are someone who spends a game period gossiping with friends, sitting idle, or completing CW/HW, then you better use that to practice your music/singing. If teachers see your sincerity, they will definitely allow you too. The same can be done in free classes that you get when teachers are absent.

These are a few tips that will definitely help you add an extra 10-15 hours of time weekly to follow your passion. Do let us know how you manage to practice more. Share your ways in the comments section below.
