Simple Tricks to Improve Music Practice
In a music lesson, students receive many new tools and skill building techniques. The sooner your child practices after a lesson, the easier and more productive the whole week of practicing will be.
Students should aim to review lesson material with a parent for 3-5 minutes the SAME day as their lesson. This will solidify all the instructions from the lesson - including technique, dynamics, new material, and special areas to work on. Students will also be more likely to start practice earlier in the week with a chip of practice already out of the way.
Here are some fun ways to build lesson review into your routine:
Have your child give a "mini-lesson" to a parent or sibling using all the new information they learned from their music lesson. Kids love to teach their parents and give them their own assignments.
Film your child and give them a pretend news interview on their music assignments.
Have your child play their music pieces, and try to guess what they were assigned.
