  • PRACTICE: Successful practice is a joint effort among teacher; student and his/her parent. It is a must for each student on a regular basis to practice getting the best results. Parents should provide an atmosphere at home that will promote efficient learning and help the student look forward to a routine practice schedule. Time must be set aside consistently for practicing rather than trying to play “catch up” just before coming to lessons. A minimum of 15-20 minutes for 3 days is mandatory for each week. This time may be expanded by the teacher based on the student’s level of performance.
