SoS Teaching Tips
Practice Perfect.
Students need to be taught how to practice perfect. Most students just want to play a song even if they don’t know it first. The words “SLOW DOWN” are familiar to most music teachers. It can help to explain that we are teaching our fingers the song and that we have to give the muscles lots of practice before they have the “muscle memory” to always play the song correctly.
If we can play a piece well slowly than we can play correctly when we speed up to the tempo the piece is to be performed at.
A good test at how proficient a student is on a piece is to listen to the first time the piece is played. That’s the average. If there are lots of mistakes and it is only played well after several attempts, then the piece is not finished.
Try this free handout I use for my students to teach them how to practice.
