Hope you're having a great week. It's hard to believe but indeed it is week nine already. The term is almost over.
This week, is Duets week! I'm so excited and looking forward to hearing the beautiful music that the students will be playing together. Don't forget (if you are doing duets) to come to your partners lessons as well as your own. We are also booking in AMEB exams this week.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this already but this year we are having the 40 piece challenge. The challenge is to be able to learn 40 new pieces throughout the year. Those that manage to do that will get a trophy and best of all, will know that they completed it and will of course improved greatly as a musician. If students manage to learn 20 or 30 pieces there will be a certificate of accomplishment for that.
Just a quick note on practice. You don't need to practice lots to get better quickly, but you do need to practice regularly and be focused. Knowing what to practice and how to practice are just as important, if not more important, than how long you practice. So make sure you know what to practice. Check out the teacher notes and stay focused throughout your practice. Don't play for too long and not be focused. And practice regularly. 15 mins 5 times a week is better than one 2 hour practice session.
Have a great week!
