Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer.
Here are some reminders for lessons for this new fall season.
1.Be sure your piano is tuned - this is very important for ear training and pitch accuracy.
2.Be mindful of changes in your students' growth as this affects positions at the piano.
3.Be engaged in the discussion of goals including repertoire, competitions, national music exams, or other possible performances and milestones.
4.Set a memorable practice schedule. Remember quality over quantity is FIRST. Once good practice habits are established, the length of practice may increase.
5.Revisit repertoire lists from the past in order to maintain memorization, technique and performance skills.
Your teacher will help you with all of these tips!
