“Now go home practice”. - OK, but how exactly? Get some tried and tested piano practice ideas and strategies here!
Some people have the ability to practice and get great results without having learned much about how to practice, that is true. But most people don’t. Actually, I didn't start learning proper piano practice techniques myself until I started teaching piano.
And after more than 30 years of teaching piano, I constantly see how it's absolutely
essential for all piano students to learn about effective practice routines and
how to practice as early as possible.
But still I notice that practicing the piano is somehow assumed to just work by itself, as if every piano student was born with a “how to know how to practice” gene... Not true!
So, here are some practical tips on how to practice with more efficiency and how to get better results from each session!
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.
