The more you play, the better you get!
“What you think and feel during practice is what you will think and feel in performance”
— Marcie Zinn
I am excited to begin working with you on your musical goals! :)
Your musical journey is special and can be fun and rewarding, but to feel this, there must be consistent practice -meaning, do your best to play piano every day between your lessons. Plan your piano practice before school, or right after school. Make sure you practice at least 4 days every week. For the best benefits, play every single day with small goals - make sure to read the lesson notes.
Please make sure to have a notebook (or binder with paper) for lesson notes, this is not just for the teacher but also useful for you to review at home.
A Guideline to Piano Practice
Start with: 5-10 minutes, everyday
Build to 15-20 minutes, everyday
LEVEL UP: 30 - 45 minutes, or more!
Playing anything everyday will get you to the goal the fastest - but things happen, aim for 5 - 6 days per week.
MINIMUM 4 days per week
It is very important to create a good habit for positive practice.
During our lessons, I will suggest different ways to practice, depending on what we are working on.
