Basic Pratice Tips
Whether your child is just starting out, or is a returning student, here are a few ideas to keep the practicing fun and productive.
- Depending on how much your child needs to practice, try to do the practicing in either 15 minute intervals or all at one time.
- Small children have a hard time staying focused, use goals and rewards to help keep them motivated. For example, if they learn the first 4 bars of the piece, reward them with a Smartie.
- If your child is an early riser, encourage them to practice before school.
- To help with your child’s performing skills, have them perform their pieces for you and your family on a regular basis. This will help them feel more confident come recital time.
I hope these few tips are of assistance , if your are ever in need of more practicing suggestions, feel free to ask your teacher or myself.
