How to Structure a Practice Session

1. Scales  (Pick one scale and do at least 5 times)
2. Technique  ( Etudes, Note Reading, Red or Black Book)
3. Current Piece  (Practice spots first with many repetitions, then entire piece or section)
4. Review pieces  (At least 4 per day – current book and prior books)
Everyone always asks “How much time should I practice?”   This varies taking into account the age and level of the student but as a rule of thumb:
Book 1: 30 minutes/day
Book 2: 30 – 45 minutes/ day
Book 3 and up: 60+ minutes/ day
