Hi Everyone,

Here are your assignments for this week:

Ella

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 min/day

What to practice: Chords To “A Sunday Smile”

How to practice it most effectively: Pick a chord, play through each note individually and check that it’s ringing out, two things to check for are left hand fingers pushing the string down all the way, and that no other fingers are touching the string that’s getting played.

How parents can support practice: Encourage Ella to continue picking up the guitar and taking a look at her lesson materials.
