Effective Piano Practice

Teddy bear playing the piano

Practising between lessons is essential as you want to learn and progress in the lessons rather than just end up practising in the lessons!

If possible, try to have somewhere quiet to practise.

It is useful to practise little and often as this keeps things fresh in your mind. Practising for around 10-15 minutes each day if possible would be a good way to start, building up to around half-an-hour each day as you progress.

The more advanced you become, the more practice time is generally needed. You may well find you'll miss some days, which is fine. Perhaps then try to do a bit more the following day when practice time may suit you better.

The hardest parts should be practised the most.

Practise slowly, correct mistakes, stay focused and concentrate.

What My Pupils Say
open quotation marksLearning with Suzanne is always fun and very enjoyable. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and as a complete beginner in my 50s, her kindness and patient guidance is helping me achieve a long held ambition to play the piano. Learning on-line this year has been fantastic, and is very easy and stress free; Suzanne and I are even going to carry on with our on-line lessons when I move to Cornwall shortly.close quotation marks
