PRACTISING

Parents and guardians can make a big difference to a student's learning experiences. To make the most of your children’s music learning, we suggest you:

  • organise a Saturday routine to get your child to their class well in time

  • note the key points of the lesson and the homework for younger children and encourage older children to do this for themselves

  • set-up a routine for practice during the week, include incentives if needed

Practising is important - student progress will be impacted if the weekly lesson is the only time they play their instrument. Students need to practise through the week to explore the new information, play by themselves and to address bits they find difficult.

As a guide, a younger child should practice about 10 minutes four times a week and an older child could pratice 30 minutes four times a week.​
