>How to practice it most effectively: sing while playing

How parents can support practice; pay attention to Simon’s playing and see that he plays in rhythm. If you know the song, maybe sing along?

Kiran

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 minutes a day everyday
>What to practice: Highway To Hell, Back In Black

How parents can support practice; make sure that Kiran has a place and time to practice. Offer vocal encouragement often. Ask Kiran to explain to you the charts I have written for him and see if he is playing them right. ( He probably is, he is very enthusiastic!)

Yaya

>How to practice it most effectively: practice the picking pattern independently and practice playing the song while singing it. Remember, don’t let the “details” get in the way of enjoying singing the song. Use the picking pattern that we developed in our last lesson.

Josh


Recommended minutes to practice: 30 minutes a day everyday
>What to practice: solo for “Comfortably Numb”
>How to practice it most effectively:  remember the licks we looked at. Make sure you work on your timing. Play along to the recording. Best of all, MEMORIZE the solo by singing along to it in your head while listening to it. Another good way to memorize music is to imagine it.
