How It Works

Six Things to Keep In Mind When Setting Goals

Setting goals isn’t always easy! It can feel overwhelming to figure out the specifics needed to reach the potential we envision. Working with a great teacher can help, and, fortunately, these teachers all have some great advice on goal creation no matter your stage of learning.


The January Snapshot

The first step to achieving a goal is setting it. Now is the time to get started. Set up a time (trial or paid lesson) with a teacher at Lessonface. During your session, record a clip of how you are playing now. Discuss where you'd like to be, and come up with a plan to get there. 

The January Snapshot of your playing will be attached to your lesson, and you can come back at any time over the next weeks and years and see how much progress you've made.
