We were lucky to get a visit from the Ghost of Elvis at our costume performance party. He played an excerpt from Graceful Ghost Rag by William Bolcom... Also could barely see the sheet music through the dark sunglasses! LOL!!

Happy Friday everyone! Here's our 5th practice tip for everyone :)

“Break it Up” 2 short and focused bursts of practicing can be more productive than 1 longer session. Try breaking up practice times and achieve smaller goals more consistently.
Just remember, we are what we practice! Have fun, be patient, and strive for consistency! We hope these tips can help make practice less of a chore, and more towards all the rewarding feelings that come through music making.

04/15/2021

Here's today's practice tip. Stay tuned for our final tip on Friday, and then for featured videos!

"Piano-Free Practice" Practice doesn’t have to be just at the piano. Even accomplished concert pianists practice on tabletops when in a pinch. The advantage here for younger students is the potential to practice good hand shape and touch without having to think of notes. Good technique can be practiced on the kitchen counter! 😉

04/14/2021

Practice tip for your Wednesday!

"100% Notes" Don’t worry about rhythm and speed. Concentrate on accurately striking each note slowly to feel how the piece works in the hands. Once tricky areas become easier, slowly reintroduce rhythm and speed.

More tomorrow!

04/13/2021

Today's practice tip:

2.) “Jump around” All too often, students start practicing just at the beginning of the piece. Makes for a strong intro, but what about the rest of the song! Being able to start and play anywhere in the song deepens understanding of the content. Try to start anywhere besides the beginning!

More tips to come :)

04/12/2021

Today's practice tip:

“Say-n-Play” Saying the letters out loud while playing the notes is a very helpful way to practice for students in all levels. This practice technique aids with note recognition, developing tonal memory and betters concentration. Tip #2 tomorrow!

04/10/2021
