Learning an instrument involves a commitment to regular practice. Realistically, at least 4 or 5 times a week to make good progress.
I teach all my pupils how to practise, so that they can a) progress faster between lessons and b) become better, more confident, independent learners.
Parents can help by setting up a daily practice routine and checking the weekly learning guidance sheets I provide.
Be prepared to get involved- it is a team-effort! Young learners need plenty of parental support, encouragement and reminders of how to practise.
