Unique Practicing Techniques

And other helpful hints in getting students to practice and understand music

This presentation has been designed for the teacher but students are more than welcome to be present. Through charts, games and commonly used statements from students as to why they did not practice, we will explore some of the pitfalls that students make when leaving the teaching studio and attempting to practice at home or their own. Some topics include:

  • hand position
  • note reading/accidental work
  • assigning a price to practice
  • special effects
  • theory work habits
  • keys to successful practice
  • musicianship when wanting to go play Xbox TV
  • desiring to do your personal best
