Here are 5 tips for making your practice time count! 1. Practice a little every day. 2. Have a certain time each day that is set aside specifically for your practice so that it becomes a part of your daily routine. 3. Split your practice into even smaller chunks and do your written work or scales or improv etc. the first chunk and play your pieces the second chunk. 4. Learn each phrase slowly until you have it. 5. Don’t practice mistakes or you will become very good at them.
Next holiday with no piano is Labor Day, Sept. 2nd.

Our next program will again be at Excelsior Nursing & Rehab and will feature minor pieces which sound mysterious, spooky or sad. The residents really enjoyed your Folk Tunes and Patriotic music presented in June and are looking forward to our next program in October. (Memorization not required.)
As soon as you know if sports, dance, gymnastics, karate, boy scouts or 4-H will conflict with your scheduled piano lessons, let me know. Your current time will continue this fall unless you tell me you need a change.
