    Practice Tips 
    • Set aside a quiet place at home for regular practicing.
    • Students should practice 30-45 minutes at least 4-5 days a week.
    • 10 minutes: Warm-ups & Scales
    • 10 minutes: Lesson Book & Technical Exercises
    • 10 minutes: Band/Concert Music
    • Practice the parts you can't play first and then the whole piece.
    • Practices difficult sections slowly then work them up to tempo.
    • USE SMARTMUSIC, it makes practicing more fun!
    • Take short breaks during your practice time.
    • The more you play the easier it will get, it just takes time.
    • Perform for the family. This is a great way to see how well you know your music and for your family to hear how your doing!
