How can parents help at home?

  • Have a piano in their home for regular practice
  • Encourage regular attentive practice daily (usually a check-list is provided to ensure task-oriented practice)
  • Have other children and pets away from the ‘learning’ space during practice time
  • Set time each day (5-6 days per week) to establish a routine to practice and learn.

 

At the start of the lesson, students should…

  • Have a notebook to write down assignments
  • Turn off electronics and any other distractions to maximize learning and enjoyment
  • Ask questions and share what they’ve learned
