Daily Practice

Practicing at Home

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new" - Albert Einstein

Practice is hugely important for success in orchestra. If done consistently, it becomes very clear in their playing. Students are expected to practice at home for around 20 minutes each day.If students aren't sure what to practice, feel free to offer them the following template:

5 minutes - Playing scales and warm-ups
5 minutes - Working on latest exercises in the red/blue book
10 minutes - Working on concert pieces, taking a small number of measures at a time

Mistakes are a good thing because they help us learn - never be afraid of them, but be brave and learn from them.
