10 Simple Rules For Happy and Efficient Practice

Get yourself into a relaxed frame of mind.

Open the window. Practice in a well-ventilated space.

Start with some gentle arpeggios or chord sequences.

Don’t push yourself too hard too quickly. Keep it simple for as long as you are still warming up.

Do some sight-reading.

Do your technical work-out first. This could be five minutes or an hour according to your time schedule.

Move on to the pieces you are learning.

Divide your time between detailed practice on difficult phrases, and playing through the entire pieces/s.

Find time to revise familiar pieces so you don’t forget them.

Leave the most pleasant piece/s till last.
