A lot of skills for effective practice and about organisation can be taught. Therefore in the worldwide survey the question was asked if people had taken a course on how to practice effectively and efficiently. Only 34% of the flutists had a course on the subject. 21% has read some books, 14% share the viewpoint that they think they don’t need it and the resulting 31% would love to take a course on it. In the comment section there was space to leave suggestions for further reading on effective and efficient practice.
