Here are a few tips to help your child practice at home:

  • Instead of setting an amount of time to practice each week, have your child set a goal for what they would like to work on. We do this each week at the end of each lesson, but your child can set more than one goal a week.
  • Slow things down. If your child is having a hard time playing through the music, have them slow it down. Once they feel comfortable with it, they can begin to speed it back up.
  • Don’t give up! Sometimes, practicing can be frustrating for a child. Instead of doing the same thing over and over, use some of the different practicing techniques we have gone over in class and try a different approach!
