Tips to make piano practice more fulfilling and fun

 

 

Practising piano while enjoying it is not that easy as many think because it involves many aspects of music starting from dynamics, rhythm, notes, and technique which a student must deal with in order to gain perfection. Practising a piano calls for determination, hard work and many drills for perfection.Most students have quit piano lessons before they complete because of the energy and commitment it piano classes call for.Sometimes someone can feel like he/she has completed a project and that he can now relax, but only to realize that the project is too far from complete.This scenario may be disappointing to many.

All the same, teachers and guardians need psyche up their students and advise them on how to practice piano while enjoying the practice.

 

Try the following tips to make piano practice more fulfilling and fun:

 

COMMIT TO REGULAR, BRIEF PRACTICE SESSIONS

 

Regardless of how many tasks or homework a student has, practicing four to five sessions a week with each session being fifteen to twenty minutes for beginners is the best way to go.The best way to make sure erratic practice is to let the learner learn by himself.

 

 

SET SHORT-TERM GOALS

 

You should have no worries about watching the clock. Consider setting short-term goals. Consider practicing a specific drill like four to five times. Always try your best to be comfortable with like just one or two lines of any piece or two. Never try conquering the whole piece in only one sitting. Time will seem to fly if you consider setting short-term goals.

 

START SLOW

 

You should never be worried about playing up to tempo. Many students tend to play fast too often thinking that is more fun. These students will end up making so many mistakes and unfortunately, they fail to master even just that small portion of the material. The end results for this is that these students will be frustrated as they will see this practice to be tedious and boring.

 

 

PICK JUST ONE OR TWO ASPECTS TO PRACTICE

 

You should try one hand at a time. Then go through as you count the rhythm. You should also try to say the names of the notes. Once you are familiar with your notes, consider combining other aspects to make the music to sound better.
