Brigitte

Great lesson today, Brigitte. Now, let’s hear it for a awesome practice this week! You can do it, dear!!!

Minutes to practice: 45 per day.
What to practice: The pieces marked with today’s date in your music book.
How to practice it most effectively: Focusing on making sure every bow you stroke sounds magical/’electrified’, and that each L.H. note you articulate is in tune!

Mazin

A challenging lesson today, but not bad considering. Usually the process is ‘2 steps forward, 1 step back’, but you’ve been on a roll these past few months, more like ‘8 steps forward, 1 step back’. So, don’t be hard on yourself, Maz. ‘Dill Pickles’ today showed a flaw in your technique. Now you know what the problem is (keeping every knuckle curved when technically articulating keys), so now you can address and make your technical playing better!

Minutes to practice: 45 per day.
What to practice: The pieces marked in your notebook with today’s date.
How to practice it most effectively: Calmly, analytically, and systematically.
How parents can support practice: Make sure Maz finds the time to practice!

Jabari

Best lesson yet, Jabari!!! Your attitude towards learning the piano has really improved. Now, practice, and you will be off to the races!!

Minutes to practice: 30 per day.
What to practice: The pieces marked with today’s date in your music book.
How to practice it most effectively: Sitting with good posture and hand/wrist/elbow form, keeping your eyes on the page as you play, keeping a steady tempo. Also, flex your wrist forward a little as your fingers articulate keys.
How parents can support practice: Please find a way for Jabari to practice — either at his babysitter’s during the day, or before he goes to bed at night.

Chloe

Best lesson yet, today, Chloe. Really happy that we connected and that we’re making such fast progress. Good job!!!

Minutes to practice: 30 per day, or more as you like!!
What to practice: The pieces marked with today’s date in your notebook.
How to practice it most effectively: Flexing wrists a little forward as your fingers articulate keys, while moving your body (either rhythmically, lyrically, or a combination of both, depending on the piece) to the strong beats.
How parents can support practice: Keep on encouraging her, she’s on a roll!!!
