Katarina

Recommended minutes to practice: 5 minutes a day

What to practice: Practice our new song, You Are My Sunshine. I also would really love it if you could focus on the G chord for next week. We’ve been working on it for a little while now and I think it’s the next step in your playing because that chords is used a lot in popular songs. 

How to practice it most effectively: Sing along while you play you are my sunshine, you have a really good ear and signing along will develop it. Also try the melody on some different strings and remember just have fun!

How parents can help: Katarina needs some help focusing so just sitting down with her for 5 minutes and asking to hear the songs she knows would be a big help.

What to practice: Work on the hammer ons and pull offs in Black Dog to get the whole thing sounding smoother. Try to memorize the chords needed for Wish You Were Here so you don’t have to look at them in the book. Practice the strumming pattern switching between Am and Em. 

How to practice it most effectively: Work through everything slowly. When it comes to memorizing chords repetition is key, so try to do one a day and refresh yourself on the ones from the previous day.

Simon

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 minutes a day

What to practice: Work on memorizing those Fly Me To The Moon chords and learn the melody is second position. Also learn the House of The Rising Sun melody is second position, I will try to challenge your ears more in lesson because I think you have strong ears.

How to practice it most effectively: The biggest thing I want you to focus on while practicing is being accurate, you know what notes to play but it’s sloppy so I want you to play everything slowly and focus on getting a good tone and playing accurately.
