Practice is much appreciated! Please encourage your child to play his/her assignments everyday. As a child I always practiced while my Mom cooked dinner (30 – 60 minutes depending). She would sometimes call out pieces she would like to hear. Occasionally she would comment “that was so much better, play it again!” or “I think that one could use some more work, try slowing it down and see if you can fix your mistakes.” She always loved to listen to me play and it made me practice better knowing I had an audience.
