Setting Up a Practice Routine

In this video, we’re going to share our ideas about one of the most important foundations for getting the most out of your viola or violin lessons: setting up a practice routine.

• First, set a goal for daily or weekly practice, and write it in the calendar.

• When choosing a time to practice, think about the time of day when you can concentrate the best. If you’re not sure, experiment!

• Frequency is more important than duration. Aim for more days with less time on each day rather than a giant cram session right before your lesson.

• Congratulate yourself when you meet your goals! And when you miss your goals, be kind, see if you can figure out what went wrong, and if your goals need to be adjusted.
