• Practice Tips

    1.  Schedule a 15-20 minute block of time that you will practice each day.  If you
        make it part of your daily schedule, it will become a habit.  It is much better to
        practice for a short amount of time every day than to practice for a long time
        on one day!
     
    2.  Follow the 3 steps for learning a new song!
              1. Read the note names
              2. Play pizzicato (pluck the string)
              3. Play arco (with the bow)
     
    3. If you get very frustrated.....take a break!  Don't be too hard on yourself.
     
    4. Perform occasionally for your friends and family.  You've worked hard...share 
        your success!
