Kathi’s best Practice Tips

Repeat troubled spots immediately
The sooner you go back and play the difficult spots again, the more you will retain. I call this “repeat before the glue dries”. Because there are different levels of retention, this is another reason why going back to the very beginning of a piece does not help you correct the errors or improve your playing. For most adults, you can remember the Pledge of Allegiance, because as a child you said it every day for years. So even now when you probably haven’t said it for a long while, you can still recite it. This is because you’ve learned it at a deeper level. Practicing a part over and over but doing it consecutively is the best way to retain what you’ve learned or corrected and sets what you’ve learned to that same deep level Tips

In home, in studio or Skype lessons at your convenience

In home lessons
or instructor’s home/professional studio
Melody Music Studios offers convenient, in home lessons for busy parents and adults. This is especially nice for piano and drum lessons, so the student can take lessons right on their own instrument.For students that prefer to go outside for lessons, we also offer individual home or professional studios. Melody Music Studios carefully monitors the instructor’s home studio and sets guidelines the instructors must maintain to make sure it’s safe and comfortable. The advantage to having a home studio versus going to a large studio or store for lessons is that it’s clear from distraction from other lessons going on around you, and you don’t have the sales pressure of buying from the store when you walk in.
