As with anything, improving in music takes practice. Here are some ways to make practicing easier:
- Set the same time every day to practice. This works particularly well for children. Generally the earlier in the day the practicing can occur, the less reminding is required by parents to get the child to practice.
- Be sure your teacher uses professional teaching materials. There are some excellent study methods developed by professional music educators. These materials have been researched and are continually upgraded and improved to make learning easier.
- Practice with a purpose. Don’t mindlessly run through your material a set number of times. Listen to yourself and find places that need improvement. Focus on those areas.
- Music should be something that you enjoy for a lifetime. Try not to put unrealistic expectations on yourself or your children to learn in a set period of time.
