All About Practicing

How often should a Student practice at home? And what can parents help out with?

Every student should aim to practice five to seven days a week.
Practicing everyday teaches responsibility, patience, and discipline.

Each weekly lesson only lasts 30 minutes.
30 minutes is the perfect time frame for students ranging anywhere between 5 years to 15 years.
However, practicing 30 minutes every day can become overwhelming for some students, which might cause discouragement and even lead to students disliking music.

This is a chart I created which shows a student's age and a good practice time frame.

One way a parent can help is keeping their piano player accountable in daily practicing.
Encouraging and even praising seemingly small accomplishments will boost a student's esteem and inspire them to continue to practice.

An easy and efficient way to make sure a student will practice is to set a timer and place it on the piano for student. Many times, students will continue practicing past the required time.
This is usually a very happy day for parents :)
