"I have been playing guitar now for 3 months, and yet I feel I am not making any progress"
Have you really been playing forthree months?
Let's find out!
Let's calculate the total number of hours a student has been playing the guitar over a period of three months based on the following information.
Weekly guitar lesson: 45 minutes
Daily practice time: 30 minutes
Days of practice per week: 5 days
First, let's calculate the weekly practice time:
Weekly Practice Time = Weekly Lesson Time + Daily Practice Time Weekly Practice Time = 45 minutes + (30 minutes/day * 5 days/week) Weekly Practice Time = 45 minutes + 150 minutes/week Weekly Practice Time = 195 minutes/week
Next, let's calculate the monthly practice time:
Monthly Practice Time = Weekly Practice Time 4 weeks/month Monthly Practice Time = 195 minutes/week 4 weeks/month Monthly Practice Time = 780 minutes/month
Finally, let's calculate the total practice time over three months:
Total Practice Time = Monthly Practice Time 3 months Total Practice Time = 780 minutes/month 3 months Total Practice Time = 2340 minutes
Now, let's convert the total practice time from minutes to hours:
Total Practice Time in hours ≈ 2340 minutes ÷ 60 minutes/hour
Total Practice Time in hours ≈ 39 hours
So, over a period of three months, you have been playing the guitar for approximately 39 hours!!!!!!! - Measure your progress again!!! Ask yourself: "Did I, or did I not, make progress in the last 39 hours?"
Hopefully you will now feel better about your progress!!!!!!
