Get the most from your lessons:

• Practice between lessons. Think about a sports team: you can’t just play in the game without learning how to play in the practices. Think about school: after your math “lesson” do you have “homework” to help you remember what you learned in the lessons? You can’t just play piano “for fun” until you have learned how to play the piano.
• Find a regular time to practice. Examples: before school, right after school, just before or after supper…
• Participate in a Music Festival. Give yourself a goal & something to work towards. Music festivals are a NON-competitive way to give you motivation to practice. Of course you are going to want to try to play your best when playing in pubic! There is a festival in November & in April. Both festivals award scholarships to excellent performances which some of our students have won in the past. You also get a mini lesson with an adjudicator. Sometimes you need to hear something from somebody other than your teacher for it to sink in 🙂
• Check your piano report cards to see what you have for homework. If a piece number has been circled that means you have started to work on it. You keep working on it until you have at LEAST 4 of the 6 boxes stamped. If you get all 6 boxes stamped you earn $1 in piano money.
