Practice Tips

  • Frequent practice for a short time four or five days per week is more valuable than a long period of practice on one day.

  • Pay attention to the assigment on your practice calendar; go in order.

  • Repeat the things that are difficult for you until they become easier.

  • Pay attention to your  hand positions and posture when you play:  good habits become second nature the more you remind yourself (just like bad habits will too, unfortunately, if you keep playing with those!)
