end-of-year reflection questions for musicians


We are reaching the end of the year.


Before entering the new year, it’s always good to take some time to reflect on what we’ve done, what we’ve learned, what we’ve achieved and what we can do differently next time.


To help you, I’ve put together a list of 10 end-of-year reflection questions specifically designed for musicians like yourself.


10 End-of-Year Reflection Questions for Musicians


1. What musical achievement(s) are you most proud of this year?


2. On average, how often did you practise this year and for long? Was it enough practice for what you wanted to achieve?


3. What are valuable tips you learned this year in your practice or in your music lesson?


4. What is something that was hard for you to do on your instrument at the start of the year but is easy now?


5. In what area of your practice do you feel you made the biggest improvement?


6. In what area of your practice could you have made more improvement?


7. Which piece(s) of music did you enjoy learning this year?


8. Of the pieces you learned this year, which one helped you grow the most as a musician?


9. What advice would you give yourself if you could redo this year?


10. What advice would you give other musicians from what you learned this year?

That’s it! I hope you find these questions useful.


Happy reflection!
