10 Simple Rules For Happy and Efficient Practice

1
Get yourself into a relaxed frame of mind.

2
Open the window. Practice in a well-ventilated space.

3
Start with some gentle arpeggios or chord sequences.

4
Don’t push yourself too hard too quickly. Keep it simple for as long as you are still warming up.

5
Do some sight-reading.

6
Do your technical work-out first. This could be five minutes or an hour according to your time schedule.

7
Move on to the pieces you are learning.

8
Divide your time between detailed practice on difficult phrases, and playing through the entire pieces/s.

9
Find time to revise familiar pieces so you don’t forget them.

10
Leave the most pleasant piece/s till last.
