Instruction: Tips

Practice Tips

Top ten checklist before the lesson:
  1. Arrive well-rested.
  2. Have a healthy snack before the lesson.
  3. Hands are washed and dried.
  4. Music scores, including the piano parts, are present.
  5. A notebook to write in is present.
  6. A pencil with eraser.
  7. Colouring books, a quiet toy, or book is available to a younger sibling watching the lesson.
  8. Be prepared to follow-up  last week’s lesson with consistent, quality practice.  The direction we are moving in is better, not perfect.
  9. Be prepared to listen, try, and have fun!
  10. Remember to check the case for the violin AND the bow before leaving home… it’s happened to all of us at some point.
