Hello Sarah,

One way you never improve yourself is playing music, rythems, notes, scales, Etc. that come easily or familiar to you. Playing them is fun and gives you more confidence as a player, but, in the end, you stay at that level of musicianship. My band director is always telling us: "When you go home and practice tonight, work on the measures you're having problems with, not the measures that are easy." So, by playing more difficult music, extemely high or extememly low notes, unfamiliar scales, you can better yourself. And, eventually, that will become easier as well. Therefore, you will have improved.

Best of luck to you, Steven
