Practice Advice

Practicing is a super important part of improving your skillset.  April's general thought on practice is not to set a timer and worry about the amount of time, but rather focus on the quality of time.  You won't see much improvement by just coming to lessons once a week, you need to be putting in the time outside of class as well.  This looks different for everyone. 

If you're following a more professional track, then practicing needs to happen on a daily basis, should be rather rigorous - meaning that you're incorporating warm ups, songs, technique, and a ton of self reflection (recording yourself and analyzing said recordings, keeping a journal of each practice session so you can constantly see how you're progressing and what you need to continue to work on.)

If this is more of a hobby then the rigor doesn't need to be there, but there still needs to be time invested.  April encourages her students to find those spare minutes in your day to practice and keep those skills fresh and moving forward. 

Whether you're taking lessons to become a professional or a hobby, make practicing fun, and something you look forward to, not something you have to do.  Make it a regular part of your day.  Performing should be fun, find your joy and look at each practice session as an opportunity to perform!
