Successful Practicing Tips

The better you get at an instrument, the more fun it becomes to play. But how do you get better? Practice, practice, practice. Use these helpful tips to keep weekly practicing fun and effective for students of all ages.

  • Set up a practice space away from distractions- try to practice away from the TV, other music, or heavy activity areas. The best practice spaces will be quiet and clean so the student can focus.
  • Schedule practice sessions for the same time every day, so it becomes a habit.
