Students are expected to take a serious approach to the study establishing a regular practice schedule, memorizing pieces and planning ahead for recitals and other events. A minimum daily practice time of 20-30 min. is expected for all beginners. As student progresses to a new level of proficiency, practice time should be gradually increased from 45 min. to 2 hours. Lesson time should be gradually increased as well. To keep successful and steady progress and develop professional technique students are expected to practice on a well – maintained acoustic pianos, not electronic keyboards.
Parental support and assistance in practicing (especially for beginners) is vital. Parents should always be aware of student’s assignments, help with establishing daily practice schedule and making sure that the student is ready on time for public events. Parents are also responsible for providing an acoustic piano (not electronic keyboard/digital piano) and tuning at least once a year.
