As with any skill and with anything new that one is learning, practice is essential when learning to play a musical instrument. Along the years, we have come across students who were taking instrumental lesson, but they didn’t have a musical instrument at home. As you can imagine, progress was very minimal – if you only do a 30 minute class per week on an instrument and no practice in between, you can only expect to learn the basics. Likewise, those students who don’t practice regularly, do not achieve their full potential.
On a positive note, lately we have seen tremendous progress in some of our students who have who previous did very minimal practice and nowadays are practicing 2-3 times per week. The difference is remarkable and really goes to show that whatever little practice you can put in, it will definitely pay off! Even with the excuse of being busy, it is easy to fit in a 10 minute practice here and there – it should relax you anyway and help you feel better!
