Effective Piano Practice Tips
I like my students to work on several pieces at once. Different repertoire, etudes and exercises, scales and chords, some sight reading and chord piano for example.
This can be rather a lot of material to work on, and can lead to confusion unless the material and the practice time is organized.
It is a good idea to start the piano practice session with some form of warm up, scales and chord practice for example. If you are working on any particular exercises for piano technique, this is good to do first as well.
Next comes the study of repertoire. These pieces will be in different levels of completion, so to create a sense of where you are with each piece, and to quickly assess what needs to be done, I have found the piano practice tips below to be of big help.
I can really recommend: The Musicians Way, it's a book crammed with great tips and plans on how to organize your practice. It has inspired me and my teaching a lot.
