PRACTICE 

It is the student’s responsibility to practice regularly and long enough to complete lesson assignments.  During the week parents are encouraged to be supportive and active participants in practice at home. Having a set time for practice each day can help. Specific practice suggestions that I give at the lesson need to be carried out during practice at home. Parents of young students are expected to sit in on the lesson so they will know how to best help their child practice. Following are practice guidelines:

Beginners: 15 – 30 minutes per day

Intermediate: 30 – 45 minutes per day

Advanced: 60+ minutes per day.

MATERIALS

  • A tote bag to carry music to and from lessons.
  • A  three ringed binder to put assignment sheets in which I will provide.
  • A metronome to use at home
  • Music and scores
