Practice often in short sessions….


Concise practice advice from our found Kathi
Practice often in short sessions so that you are fresh and retain everything you’ve learned. When you’re learning a new piece, practice short segments of the piece in one practice session, and immediately repeat troubled areas. Listen to yourself when you sing or play and be your own instructor or hear the words of your instructor as you practice. Record yourself so that you can hear yourself better for your final critique. And lastly, add color, dynamics and your own feelings to make the music yours!
