Practice tips -

Practicing a little bit each day (as little as 10 minutes) is better than once or twice a week for a long period of time.

Purchasing a music stand for your child is the best thing that you can do to promote proper playing posture for every instrument!


Every student should have an assignment sheet that has their assignment for the next lesson and a log to keep track of their practice.

Please contact me if you have questions about music stands or what and how much your child should be practicing.
