    why don't you actually take lessons? i took lessons for 3 years. the fact that you are paying for the lesson kinda helps you finish what your doin...

    I really think that if you've even got pieces that you're interested in that you want to learn, it all comes down to patience and will power.

    I can sometimes be really bad about that on the bassoon even though I love it, and the same thing goes for the piano in fact. You just have to focus on it and not get distracted.

    Envy is right.

    Also, set a target for yourself (like finishing to learn a song by x date). Have someone listen to what you did, or record your playing. When I wanted to learn a piece, I slacked knowing no one would know I did but when I promised someone I'd play the piece for them it made me work harder to finish so I can follow through with the promise.

    I think the biggest thing is finding songs you really want to play. If the songs don't interest you then you're probably not going to stick with them long enough to perfect them.

    Find a better reason to learn new songs instead of just learning them for the hell of it

    You could enter a talent show or some shit like that
